Here's another "snow globe" type lantern idea.

You might remember the BALL JAR LANTERN I shared a couple of weeks ago.
I just happened to have another broken lantern in my "stash"...

I started by taking this chippy metal lantern apart and cleaning it up.

I painted the back panel with chalkboard paint and added a picture of my "snow babies".
That globe is just a clean glass ornament flipped upside down in the empty socket.

Of course some greens and embellishments.  
You know me :)

Well, I just realized how many projects left I have to show you...and how little time I have left before Christmas.
You might see me more often this next week.  
What happened to all that time?

Chat REAL soon,
