New additions to my creative cavern

I have had these dollar store/hobby lobby white paper lanterns in my decorating stash since before we moved from the old house. I knew I wanted to hang them somewhere in the house but after doing most of the decorating they just did not fit the theme anymore. :( SO what is a girl to do with SIX paper lanterns? Well alter them of course! I used tons of spray ink, chalk ink and more from my CKCB kit (and a few extras) and was very random about it (very hard for me!). I love how they came out though. Five adorn my corner above my homemade clip it up and one graces me from under my homemade Create Memories sign that one of my Soldiers made for me before I left the Army. I think they look fabulous and really fill that empty awkward space in the corner. What do you think?

First step, while they were drying.
In the corner hung up by my awesome hubby!
My beautiful sign that I will treasure always.


  1. Awwwww...that story behind that sign is so sweet! You sure changed up those lanterns!

  2. How fun, and that sign is awesome.

  3. These are sooo pretty, Crystal!

  4. Sorry I'm just getting around to comments this month.....great job of repurposing what you already had! They make a cute corner :).


Thank you for leaving me some love, it really makes my day!
