I love making 3D and home decor items, but I just don't do it all that often. I am going to try and change that. I started last week by making the pumpkin. This week I made an autumn owl-shaped lantern, which I am going to put on display with my pumpkin.
It lights up real nice, even with just a tea light. I also added some vellum behind the open parts of the body to soften the glow of the light.
