Shop at Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Four Picture Frames
  • Glue
  • Glass Vases or Candleholder
  • Pillar Candle
  • Glass Gems

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Remove the backing on each frame.
  2. Remove the glass pane, add some glue around the opening on the frame, and return the glass pane. Allow this to dry for several hours.
  3. Glue the edges of the four frames together, forming a cube.
  4. Allow your frames to dry overnight.
  5. Place a glass vase or candleholder filled with luster gems and a pillar candle inside your lantern… this is gorgeous as a decorative accent or for ambient lighting at dinner parties on the patio. If you plan to burn your candle, make sure it is secure in the glass holder and in a well-ventilated area.
