So, I need a bracket to hang each lantern on the cart
You'd think I would just whip out some regular old brackets to hang my lanterns from.
And pass up on a design element?...no way! So, Here are some bracket sketches....
Each design with a lantern hanging from it...
yummy nouveau swirl
peacock feather- love
interesting and too complex
my last sketch and favorite.
The overall shape frames the lantern perfectly. As well, the foot of the bracket mimics/echoes the shape of the wheel on the side of the cart.
Funny, once you cut this little design out there's really nothing to it....will have to find the right material. foam is flimsy...maybe if I layer foam and glue it that will stiffen it. or maybe wood. will post pics of the finished brackets..maybe even mounted on the cart with lanterns hanging and flickering. excited already!
