DIY Paper Lantern With Hinna Designs


DIY Paper Lantern With Hinna Designs

I like Hinna designs,.The smell of Hinna is just awesome,In last few days i apply hinna on my hands a lot,i want to show you the images but wait until it previous color vanish from my hand & then i apply hinna again,actually my right hand is applying hinna & left is the model hand
Well my today’s post is not only based on hinna painted hands,i will show you a variation with hinna can make a paper lantern with these designs.& its not bad to have a hinna designed paper lantern.
Have a look at my effort..

I pluck a paper from MY SKETCH BOOK
Fix the paper on board & Apply Hinna on Paper,

I complete the design,& leave it until it gets dry totally
Then i draw some lines with colored permanent markers,i use red,blue & green colors.

This is the finished outlook,then i convert it into a paper lantern
 I roll the paper & use a double sided paper tape for pasting both sides,then it gets into a roll shape
If you remember I post a few months back,THIS CANDLE  
This is also a recycling basically, i use an empty jar of honey & i pour some batik wax into it,so its a candle these days,how funnnn

Its the poor image in the dark..I simply lighten the flame to the candle & place this roll around the candle,there was almost one inches distance from candle to paper..i think its not dangerous,but you must be careful while lightening..
Now i will show you some pics of my hinna painted hands..?
Have a look,

    Your lantern is beautiful Khadija, especially when the candle is lit! I am VERY fond of henna designs. I have a door in my house in one of our bedrooms that is handpainted with patterns that sort of resemble these henna designs. It’s very pretty looking. One day I may share it on my blog…

    I would like to try henna painting on my hands one day maybe… :)

    Hi Khadija…

    Ohhh…I love how you did the Henna designs on paper to make the lantern! What a great idea! I love the designs that are typically used for Henna…they remind me of what we Americans call a paisley pattern! Very pretty! Thank you for sharing them with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party, my friend!

    Have a wonderful week, dear lady!

    Hi there, I just found your beautiful blog and became a follower – I am not surprised you have such a huge following – you have such fun ideas and beautiful crafts. I don’t know how or where I would find henna to make your lamp but I will try the asian shops near me … would love to have a go. Your henna hands are so very pretty – do you draw the design freehand? I would like to try that too, maybe on my arms. Thankyou for being so inspirational – I will visit often. Please come and visit me too (a different kind of art to you but it takes all sorts to make the world, right?) Betty


    May 27, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Thanks all..& Betty.
    I really value your sweet words,thanks for the follow, I enjoy following back..
    I wish you got henna herb in your area,its fun to make designs & stuff..these designs are freehand,my all designs are by me..i never use any pattern,,in fact I have no stamina to copy any pattern..haha..I have my own creative mind :)
    Thanks for dropping by & try this & show me your effort please.. :)
    Love ~

  82. Betty

    May 27, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Hi again – I will try and get some henna from asian girls at work – it would be so much fun to try this, if successful I will let you know. Thankyou for visiting me. Betty
