I found a very interesting idea for creating your own lantern.You’ll need spray paint, fallen leaves, a hot glue gun, rope for hanging.
1 spray paint the lantern gold in two, light applications.
2 spray paint the leaves gold, front and back. Allow to dry completely.
3 Begin assembly by turning the lantern upside down and starting from the base, hot glue the leaves around the opening, stems pointing up toward the top.
4 Slightly overlap the edges of the leaves to create movement. Continue layering the leaves in circles around the lantern until reaching the top opening. The stems should gather pointing toward the metal hanging piece at the opening.
Enjoy this project!
