Decorating Your Home with Prima

DIY home decor

I love using lanterns through-out my home.  Today I am sharing a lantern to be used indoors as an accent for my craft studio.  I started with a white lantern from my local art supply store.  I kept the design simple by adding just a few key pieces.  At the very top of the lantern, I applied black sand texture paste and allowed it to dry overnight.  Next, I added metal embellishments to each section of the top of the lantern.

The focal point of my lantern are beautiful Relics & Artifacts archival cast pieces.  I chose to use the heart and flame from the Chivalry collection.  I embellished the heart by applying soft gloss gel, then covering it with midnight blue glass glitter.  I also added black and white glitter to the top of the heart, just below the flames.  I added Inka Gold in Hematite and Silver to the flames to create a beautiful luster on the piece.  Next I attached my archival cast heart and flame design directly to the glass door of the front door of the lantern. To finish the design, I added a piece of cardstock to the inside back of the lantern. Just a few steps to a beautiful, one-of-a-kind home decor piece.
