Upcyled Lantern

Whenever I go to Ikea I either buy tealights or something to put them in. Always. I've had three of these lanterns knocking around my house for a while. I didn't know what to do with them and they've been sat on my landing for months.
 I bought some ivy to go up and around the house and had a few plants left over so I decided to transform my unloved lanterns into something a bit prettier. I used one Ivy plant from the set of 6 I had bought, a small plantpot which I made a little shorter to fit inside the lantern and put the pot inside a ziplock bag to retain the water.
