DIY House Lanterns

Fellow Fellow

I'm super keen on these illuminated houses. They'd add a touch of magic to any corner of your home, but this has got to be one of the best ideas for a kids' night light arrangement I can imagine. I'm picturing a mini village displayed on a bureau or a couple of dreamy chateaus erected on a bedside table. Such a clever and simple concept; plus, a snap to make.

Claire from Fellow Fellow constructed these winsome works using battery-powered tea lights and images from an old book filled with vintage photographs of countryside manors and cozy hamlets. I love the little touch of cutting out the windows for the light to shine through, an invitation for kids to imagine who might be the tiny inhabitants of these small fantasy dwellings. Check out the full tutorial here, complete with Claire's helpful insights on pulling off your own series of illuminated houses.
