Made This: The Green Lantern

Mark Eden lantern via April and May

Feelin' crafty... I saw this beautiful lantern and decided to give it a go myself as I've a little experience in building wire caging. Mine's not quite as graceful as its inspiration but it was successful enough to keep me interested in a second attempt.

A note of advice to anyone who feels they spend too much time reading blogs and posting images to Pinterest that will never be actually put to use. Force yourself. Just pick up the materials you need and force yourself. Pursue at least one idea or project a week that you find online and you won't feel so miserable about all the time you spend there. In fact, it will probably cut the time you spend online significantly. And you'll have something to show for it.
