These lanterns look like perfect SNOW BALLS - great decor idea for winter wonderland wedding string-wrapped papier mache balloons/lanterns - if i get motivated!-- do these in orange or add a topper to look like pumpkins!
This would be an awesome quilt! Mandala crochet blanket, text of pattern at link. Like this square design and colors. Would like to use them for round afghan as well. NOTE: look up conversion for pattern to USA it's written in UK gauge.
