You will need to have a Henna cone, a few colored markers & A4 size paper sheet..

First apply henna on the paper, & let it dry! then fill the designs with different will be fun to fill tiny spaces with markers :)

Now connect both sides of the paper with duel sided transparent tape..& it has turned out into a cute lantern! how easy to replace a plain paper into a cute designed Lantern..hmmm

I think its the best design i have ever done for lanterns..isn’t it??
well its another lantern..but my favorite one!!
very soon these lanterns will take their visa+passport for moving towards Seattle,Washington..hmmm..

Hehe..actually I am sending these to my friend, she is going to celebrate her 18th birthday on this 27th plus her graduation party is also around, hopefully she will receive these lanterns in time!
Important to know..!!

You must keep these points in your mind while making & using this lantern;
Paper must be strait & hard
markers must NOT be new..otherwise color will penetrate the other side of paper. rough markers are the best for filling this pattern!
Don’t flame it must have any candle holder, then place this lantern cover around..otherwise it can be burn!

Use Mod Podge over the henna herb will not be dropped while any will seal the whole design :)

    Beautiful work and thanks for the tuturial!Can you suggest something instead of mod podge? Wish to try it.


    August 16, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    its so sweet of you my dear, i really admire your lovely words, you are always welcome to visit my blog, thanks again!

    thanks a bunch for the lovely appreciation :)
    if you cant find mod podge around, you can also use any liquid transparent glue, but if its too luquid it can also damage your henna design and paper, so i will recommend mod podge.

    Every now & then I see a creative artist that refuels me when I’m drained…
    Just stumbled onto your page/blog and I LOVE it! I’ve been doing “art/crafts etc..” for about 40 yrs. Still looking for my ONE art I have my most fun doing detailed freehand, henna type art. I ran out of fuel THEN I see your stuff! I’m back to picking up the pens and markers and going to do more art.
    THANK YOU!! For inspiring and refueling my artist mind!

    Thank you so much Sharon for leaving such sweet words here..I am feeling proud that my work is inspiring other artists too..
    lets take your marker & make something awesome & show me via my e-mail I would love to see your drawings & doodles..
    So welcome..keep visiting dear..
    Lots of Love..!
