Darice: Mountain Sunrise Lantern

During my road trip across the country, I developed a new appreciation for mountains. The drive from Nevada across the California border was especially breathtaking; you can see the mountain road for miles, lined with snowy peaks and lush greenery. Love. 

And while I’m a New Yorker and a city girl through and through, I’ll always adore the Pacific Northwest. To honor my time here in Northern Cali, I decided to make a mountain lantern for my latest project at Darice Crafts.

A lit tealight inside the lantern creates the illusion of a sunrise. It all comes down to using vellum paper placed at the perfect spot. I’m in love with this one!
