Christmas lanterns

Golden times for lanterns. A hand-designed decorative lantern gives out a warm, golden shimmer when decorated with an edding gloss paint marker.

Next to the Advent wreath, on the windowsill or as a decorative element on the gift table – decorated glass lanterns create an especially warm atmosphere at Christmas. These original decorations are even more magical when you design them yourself with a gloss paint marker from edding, whether for your own home over the holidays or as a small gift to give to dear friends or relatives at Christmas.

To create your own decorative lanterns you will need:
  • edding 75 B ACTIVE-PAINT in the colour gold.
  • Glass lanterns – we recommend using the colours red and green for Christmas.
  • a tealight.
Here’s how to decorate your lanterns – with the edding gloss paint marker:
  • Adjust the size of the decorative templates in these instructions until they are the right size for your lantern and fit inside it.
  • Position a copy of the template on the inside of the lantern and fix it in place with a piece of sticky tape.
  • Shake the edding gloss paint marker with the cap on and then carefully transfer the decorative motif to the glass lantern. The ink dries very quickly, preventing it from being smudged accidentally.
  • Allow the final pen strokes to dry, place a tealight inside and you are done!
