How to Create Your Own Tangled Inspired Lanterns

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

I remember watching Tangled for the first time and falling in love with the lanterns, the lantern scene is definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of animation I have ever seen. Ever since I have thought about gathering loads of people and letting off our own lanterns but that is still yet to happen. Therefore, creating my own lantern that I could use at home seemed like the best idea. These are incredibly easy to make and add a little Disney magic to your home! These definitely didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped but I'm still pretty pleased with them regardless!

Things you will need:
An empty candle jar
Matte frosted glass spray
Full sheet A4 label paper
Yellow paint (optional)

1First, you will need to find a template of the of the sun online, I used this one and it was a perfect fit the candle jar I used.

2Secondly you will need to use your A4 label paper to print the sun onto, I like to copy a couple of different sized templates of the sun onto the same piece of paper. That way you won't be wasting paper by having to keep printing them off, if you do not have the right size the first time round. 

3Now for the tedious part, carefully cut around the sun making sure you cut right down the outline of the template. I tend to cut the circle out first and stick that onto the jar, it then makes it easier for you stick down the rays of the sun. I like to cut stick them down after each one I have cut out. 

4For the next step I would suggest doing it outdoors, I made the mistake of spraying the frosted spray inside before and I instantly regretted that decision. Make sure you shake the can first and hold it at least 10 centimeters away from the jar before spraying it. Ensuring you give it a good coat all over, ensuring that glass jar is upside down. 

5You are going to want to leave it to dry over night, peeling off the label before it has completely dried can ruin the design. Once it is dry gently peel of the label. 

6You can leave the jar as it is after step 5 but I found it so difficult to photography that I wanted to try painting it. It didn't out as well as I was hoping... It looks incredible in real life once you have the candle lit, so the next step is completely optional. 

7I decided to paint inside the sun yellow just to see how it turned out, it didn't turn out exactly how I had imagined but I'm not disappointed! It does look beautiful once you have lit the candle.

I would love to see if you create your own Tangled lantern, so be sure to send me a picture on Twitter! I love trying out new Disney crafts, so I'm looking at putting some more of these posts together soon.
