Striped Solar Lanterns DIY

Any lantern that doesn't need oil or a battery is alright with me!  These solar lanterns are great because you can just hang them in the trees and they turn on when the sun goes down.  Easy peasy!  I grabbed a few lightweight glass vases at the 99c store and painted them with my dishwasher safe glass paint from DecoArt.  It's fantastic stuff...trust me on this.  I made a mistake and had to scrape some off with a craft knife BEFORE it had the chance to fully cure. That's some tough glass paint!  BTW, it also comes in beautiful colors, too.  The glass at the top of the vases isn't painted so it allows solar charging during the day.  Excuse me while I pat myself on the back for that little discovery!  Make beautiful things, my sweet friends, and always Make Your Mark!

Just hangin' around.
