Plant-inspired Solstice lanterns!

Happy soon-to-be longest night everyone! 

We are preparing for the winter Solstice with our herbal mother-daughter group this week, by making plant-inspired lanterns.  The simplest form is leaf and flower shapes punched into tin cans; the next is pressed leaves modge-podged onto glass mason jars - lovely!  The last is seen here, a slightly more elaborate lantern made with a twig frame (in our case grape vine) and pressed leaf "window" panes to let the candlelight through.  So beautiful!  There are many easy DIY lantern ideas out there, the best I think is using materials you already have around the garden or home.  Happy Solstice!
