'Hanukkah' lantern design

Normally, when I introduce a lantern design, I would be showing you a short video and describing the features. But in this case, a lovely lady called Leah Herz has actually beaded and photographed my design. So, I don't have a lantern to film. What you see in the photo above is Leah's beautiful beading and her photos - thank you Leah!

But I can still tell you about the design and let you know the bead colours and requirements as usual.

Design Details

This design is one that runs right around the whole lantern. It features the 'Happy Hanukkah' wording on one half. Underneath that, you see a Hanukkah gift and two Dreidels.

The other half features the traditional Menorah.

I have chosen colours in the traditional blues, but of course, you are welcome to change the colouring if you wish.

This design does not need the frames.

As with all the designs, you have the option of including a hanging loop if you wish.
