DIY Decorative Lanterns

If you’ve been in any home goods store lately, you’ve probably seen the wood lanterns that are such a big decorating craze these days. Erin from diypassion has a simple tutorial for you to create your own lanterns without spending a lot of money.

Her tutorial is complete with a supply list, detailed photos and step-by-step instructions for you to quickly complete this project. Erin also provides a link for free downloadable plans to complete the project. Erin followed the list of cuts in the plans and then assembled them after drilling pocket holes in the pieces that were to be joined together. She also drilled large holes in the top pieces so she could insert thick twine and hang her lanterns.

The final step in creating these lovely lanterns was to use wood filler and paint them. Erin chose a charcoal grey, but any color that would suit your decor would work beautifully.
