This black lantern is a great way to customize a lantern specifically for your needs. Just cut a vinyl decal and place it on the glass lantern. The LED Lantern I bought comes with a flameless candle inside. This type of metal lantern looks great on a console table or coffee table. These also work as an outdoor lantern!
Here are many more of my favorite ideas for lanterns and luminaries you can make on your own! The great thing about making your own lanterns is that you can completely customize them to your decor or occasion!
