Brush family and a Lantern  | Hobbyideas
For the Brush Family: A rather innovative reminder board is what this is. Made with papier mache and vibrantly coloured, place this on a wall as your reminder board or to write happy and funny messages for one another using sticky notes. It is a good house warming handmade gift that you can make to gift away.

For the Lantern: A rustic lantern made into something beautiful using glass colours that renders that perfect look of stained glass. Once lit it can be hung near your window or placed outdoors in a subtle manner to uplift the look and ambience of the place.
