DIY Wedding Lantern: A Bright Idea

Posted October 12, 2011 | 9 Comments

Add a romantic light to your wedding night with this fun DIY wedding lantern spotted via Hey Gorgeous with photography by Jenna McKenzie. In lieu of a traditional votive candle, this DIY wedding lantern will give you a soft, romantic flickering light inside a chic patterned design. All you need to craft this lantern is a glass jar, glue, paper and a punch. (Amazing, right?) This fun, versatile design can be created in just a few easy-to-follow steps. And, we love how it offers double duty after the I Do’s as decor in your love nest. Who doesn’t love re-using beautifully crafted wedding decor? I’d say that is time and money well spent. Plus, it looks absolutely lovely! With fall in full swing and the daylight slipping away sooner each day, we know you’ll get plenty of use out of these as wedding centerpieces for reception. You can also use these lanterns to add a well-lit pathway for guests. Take a peek at the images below: can you imagine the versatility? The possibilities are endless!
