The winter days of January are perfect for creating a light in the dark!
Historic Downtown Mansfield is hosting its second "Lanterns and Lights" night on January 19th during Third Thursdays Mansfield. Come stroll Main Street with your handmade lanterns, and check out neighborhood specials and events. At Lil' Blue Goat, we have 10 battery operated LED light strands that we are giving away to the first ten families who come in and show us their lanterns - use them to decorate yourself, your bike, your hat, your stroller...and really shine during our mid-winter festivities this week! Be sure to follow our Facebook page for updates on new art and specials, too!
If you need some inspiration for a lantern project, here are some ideas - complete with web links.
