Simple craft post today. How to make cute Easter lanterns using water slide decals. Easy and a good way to make something unique - the number of things you can make with these decals is only limited by your imagination.
I started out with two lanterns, clipped a little faux boxwood and pulled a couple of ribbon rolls out of my ribbon stash.
 Went to The Graphic's Fairy and found these cute chicks and printed them out on water slide decal paper, followed the directions that come with the label.  I tried a couple of colors of candles and decided that the vanilla color worked best.
Here they are! So easy and I love the way they came out - remember to be careful with the ribbon as you want to keep it away from the flame - an Easter fire would not be good.
