Dollar Tree mercury glass lanterns
These mercury glass style pint size glass jar lanterns with wire handle are perfect ‘as purchased’ from Dollar Tree.
Still, I prefer to always add a ‘little something’ to dress them up a bit . . . and as an inspiration to others. Most of the time I just rummage through the embellishment supplies I have on hand to find those little somethings. In this case, I had some blue METAL snowflake charms that I tied on with some satin ribbon.
Whenever possible, I make the added embellishments ‘removable’, just in case the purchaser has a different vision for using them. These are easily removable by just untying the ribbon.
They also had gold and red colors of these mercury glass lanterns. I usually add a tea light or batter tea light to them before I put them out for sale in my booth or at a show. It’s just a little extra ‘nicety’ that doesn’t cost hardly anything to add on.
