DIY Jellyfish Lantern

I just can't believe how amazing these lanterns are. And the great news is that they can be done incredibly inexpensively, with primarily dollar store items! The most expensive part is the lantern assembly, but you could probably upcycle some cheap lantern from the thrift store. You could also make these with glow sticks, for some temporary lighting. I just absolutely love these, and am going to have to make a least one of these bad boys this summer, though I think I'll end up making a few in different sizes to group together, like a big bloom (swarm) of them. So pretty!

Head on over to Germani Decor for a great tutorial on how to make you own amazing jelly lantern.

  3. Hey great website! Does running a blog similar to this require
    a large amount of work? I have absolutely no knowledge of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any
    ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject nevertheless I simply had to ask.
    Thanks!

    1. Thank you. I haven’t updated in ages, so I can’t attest to how easy it is currently to use BlogSpot as a blogging platform. However, I did enjoy using it when I did blog regularly, as it is very user friendly. I have some HTML knowledge, but it is very rudimentary, and I liked that I didn’t need to rely on having to do my own coding.

  6. First of all I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!

    1. Thank you.
      I honestly don’t center myself or anything like that before writing. I don’t actually like my own writing most of the time, so I’m not really a great resource for writing tips.

  7. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
