I love sharing thrifty ways to make your own decor. I especially love sharing these projects Live on facebook, which is where this Dollar Tree Lantern DIY came from! It came together better than ever expected and looks high end with a cute candle ring and eucalyptus candle. I have listed out the steps for you to create your own, down below.
Supplies for Dollar Tree Lantern DIY
- (4) 3.5x5” frames
- Hot Glue
- Jumbo Popsicle sticks
- Candle Ring
Begin by removing the backing and any hardware. These little frames have cute little metal label holders that I wanted to keep for the final look. You also may want to consider keeping the little stands for future DIY projects.
After a quick coat of stain, I secured the glass to the inside edge using hot glue and reattached the metal label slots.
Then I glue the frames together, forming a small box. I flipped the box over and made a base by staining and trimming down a few jumbo popsicle sticks.

You can see the base peeping through the eucalyptus candle ring I used for styling. The popsicle sticks were an afterthought but I am so happy with the outcome.
ANNNNND…here she is! So so pretty, even if I say so myself! I love it when an idea comes together to look even better than originally planned.
This Dollar Tree Lantern blends right in with our new decor from Roost + Restore Home. YOu wouldn’t even know it was a DIY if you weren’t looking for it!
I just love the detail of the label slots. It would be cute to put little inspirational quotes, bible verses, fortunes or even your family names in them!
I love the ambiance this little lantern gives when it has a candle glowing from the inside. Multiples of this lantern would make the perfect little centerpieces for ladies meetings, baby showers or even a wedding! They are so elegant and most of all.…THRIFTY!
