DIY tip: lantern with wooden heart


Photo: deco & style

A heart for wood

Wonderfully rustic: This lantern is a real eye-catcher and a pretty gift for Valentine's Day, because the romantic wooden decoration shows that it comes from the heart.

You need this for the lantern:

  • candle glasses
  • very thin birch bark strips (from nadeco.de; birch strips 70 x 8 cm, about 1.20 €)
  • Cutter with cutting pad
  • stapler
  • tealights
  • tape measure
  • secateurs
  • pencil

And that's how easy it is:

1. Measure the circumference of the glass and cut the tree bark with pruning shears.

2. Mark with a pencil heart on the back of the bark and cut with a cutter.

3. Staple the bark together and put it over the glass.

4. Put tealights in the glass.
