On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, we had a Lantern Making Workshop here at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House. It was part of the Neighborhood Small Grants Project and was organized by Yoko Tomita, a wonderful lady and community artist in east Vancouver area.
Several of us in this workshop had a chance to create glass jar lanterns. It’s great to reuse recycled materials and make something beautiful out of it. These lanterns were really easy to make and anyone can make it at home. Since Halloween is coming, it was the perfect time to make something Halloween themed. Also, we used colors that compliment the Fall season.
Strips of colored tissue paper were used to make the patterns. You can also cut out shapes and designs. Then paint the glue mixture (water and glue) over it, covering all parts of the glass jar.
Check out some of the creations we made:
