I love making my own beautiful decor. This lantern is one of those projects that is so simple and looks like it came right from the store. I assembled using the PRECUT PROJECT KIT from R+R Supply that can be purchased HERE but it could be easily assembled using some simple wood cuts. I have included a list below.
- (1) 6x6 in wood blocks
- (2) 8x8in wood blocks
- (4) 12x2 in wood blocks
- Nail gun (or Wood glue)
- Hardware or a knob of some sort
Begin by attaching the four 12x2 board to the four corners of the 8x8 board. We used a nail gun, however, wood glue would be sufficient. Just be sure to allow plenty of dry time.
Repeat the same process for the other end of the lantern, using the second 8x8 block.
Then, we attached the 6x6 block to the top using an old knob inserted through a pre-drilled hole. This step can also be subsituted with wood glue as well.
I stained the lantern using Minwax Espresso to add a touch of rich color. The Amazon link for this same color is HERE
Y’all that is it! Easy peasy and oh so beautiful. I am tickled with the simplicity and the touch of character this adds to my coffee table. Style with greenery and a candle and you’re set!
