Etsy Find: Henna Candles and Lanterns

Aren't they gorgeous?

These are from the Etsy store Hannaya (Moroccan for female professional henna artist).

Artist MaCall Scott first made these for her own wedding, and there has been no looking back. I think we are at our creative best when organizing our weddings. Remember Mora's Ritika's similar journey?

Also love these paper lanterns made from 'cloud dragon' paper from the same store.

Sidu said...

i think although the design is henna inspired... she probably uses some sort of acrylic base for the design... i d be really interested to know what she uses... as she says u can light it... wont the heat cause the design to flake ???
