Handmade Paper Lanterns

Hi Friends,

A trip to homecenter wanted me to rush back home and try out an idea which had clicked me which checking out the home decor items in there.
I was hooked on to a table lamp with pierced holes and it was too good to look at. I thought about my own version of lalterns and table tops for candles for all types of occasions, be it B'day parties, candle light dinners or simply for a relaxed evening with some good soothing music and colored light emancipating from the cute candle holders.

Here's what I diged at making as soon as I was home and I simply loved making these.

I made a parsley on one and a flower shape on the other, and this flower shape happens to be of one of the stamps set I got. I simple love this one :)

Don't they look cute ??/

They can really jazz up your living space.. and with awesome bright full colors, they are a sure winner..

One good thing is that there can be various colors embedded with the candle flames playing with the base colors..

Here's another shot of them glowing :) I'm sure in love with them. The good thing is they can also be converted into lanterns and a small colored/simple bulb can replace the candle :) Will not that be one of the awesome thing to jazz up a living space with?

PS: If these posts inspire you to bring out the creative best in you, that would be the bestest thing that will happened to you, and I'll be flattered. But, kindly do respect the hard work and thoughts that goes into these works and please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks!!!

Gond painting

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.
