Garden Lantern


I made this lantern vignette last year and I still love it. I bought the lantern at my local Home Goods store. It's meant to hold a candle but I wanted a more permanent piece. I bought a bag of shells (I live in the midwest - not so easy to get lots of shells here) and filled up the lantern.



Hang your lantern from a shepard's crook and you'll have a beautiful garden decoration.



Mine sits in the front yard.



Other ideas to fill the glass globe: marbles, broken pieces of china, little toy animals, faux flowers, a wad of christmas lights (to light up at night)...What else would you fill the lantern with?
