I made this lantern from Dollar Tree items.
I used supplies from Dollar Tree, four 8×10 canvas, four sink mats and some rope.
First, I removed the canvas and staples. I only needed the wood frames.
This is the most tedious part but it goes pretty quick.
I used four sink mats cut to fit to the backs of each wood frame. You could use less mats if you went with the smaller canvas.
Using black craft paint, I painted the mats.
While they were drying, I painted the wood frames.
I also wanted a bottom to my lantern so I painted big craft sticks from Dollar Tree.
After everything dried, I glued it all together with hot glue. I also used some super glue to make it strong.
I glued the mats to the back of the frame.
Next, I glued the frames together to make a box.
I glued the craft sticks to the bottom,
I had these cute brown acrylic beads I glued onto the bottom for feet.
I glued some rope on to the top to make a handle. I used a battery operated candle for the inside.
You could make this in different sizes depending on what size canvas you use.
