What makes these nautical? Well, the texture on the bottle reminds us of a crusty, coral covered bottle salvaged from the sea
...and they look right at home on the sailboat! (husband points out that old bottles typically aren't bright funky colors...to that we respond, this is water candy.)
Our neighbor in the Garden was having a yard sale, and we picked up a bunch of chain and votive glasses super cheap. We simply drilled holes in the holders, attached the chain, and fed through the decorated bottle. Hanging in the studio, we are lighting them with battery operated tea lights, but flame tea light or votives could also be used.
We love our painted paper versions, but no collection of nautical lanterns would be complete without the gin
and the rum!
Thanks for stopping by here, and visit the shop soon!
