Beaded Solar Lanterns

These lanterns have been hanging in my kitchen window since I photographed them for this DIY and I have to say, they bring me so much joy...You have no idea.  When I get up late at night for a glass of water, they give off the perfect peaceful glow.  The beads catch the light in the sweetest way both during the day and at night, too.  I know that some of my projects are a bit more involved than most DIYs that you find out there, but there are often ways to improvise if you don't have everything I do...Ways that might make the task at hand a bit easier for you.  Do your best, my sweet friends, and stay creative during these difficult times.  And like I always say, get out there and Make Your Mark!
