My friends over at Plaid kindly sent me a couple watercolor paints a few weeks back. I thought it would be cool to decorate a paper lantern light strand with them. I haven’t used watercolor paints since I was a kid. While painting I began to have wonderful memories of watercolor painting with my grandma. I’m pretty certain she introduced me to watercolors. This project was a lot of fun!
I painted them one at a time down the strand and hung them up to dry using clothespins on a section of a tomato cage I had on hand. If you’ve made one of my tomato cage projects, you might have one on hand too. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out my tomato cage projects here, here and here. If not, just find something to hang them on to dry!
