Build a Rustic Wood Lantern in an Hour!

Amy of Amy Krist created a rustic wood lantern in just an hour using materials she scrounged up in the garage. Amy used redwood and left it unfinished so it’ll weather beautifully over time. She even put an old paint can handle to use for the wire handle. Love Amy’s resourcefulness, and the finished product is lovely!
