I wondered how Decopatch would work on a jam jar destined to become a garden lantern. I did a bit of research on Google to get a few ideas and then I was off and running. I can’t remember the name of the paper I used, but it was just right for summer nights.
Once the jar was covered, I had an Ulrika moment and punched out some dragonflies using a light weight paper and glued them on top of the Decopatch ….. next followed several coats of clear glossy varnish …. I hate that bit as I get it all over me…. and all over my desk …. I am such a messy worker!
The final bit was the hanger …. always a bit of a botch up job that always seems to look OK in the end … I don’t have a method, just thin gold wire, a lot of winding and a few beads!
And how did it look in the dark ……? Beautiful!
