Nothing lights up a child’s eyes more than when we give them something that is so beautiful, it almost looks magical. Fairy lanterns are pretty but these lanterns designed by Nichola Battilana have a cute fairy silhouette that looks incredibly real.
The process for making them is so easy but they look incredibly beautiful. She glues tissue paper onto a glass jar and covers the base with glitter. She then glues a fairy silhouette on the inside and finishes it off with a bow and some foam berries. Watch how she transforms a regular glass jar into a beautiful DIY fairy lantern that anyone would love.
