Hello everyone! For this edition of Friday Favorites, I am sharing an inexpensive way to decorate your home with artificial flowers and $1 picture frames.
The idea for today’s blog post came from several photos I viewed on Pinterest where people hot glued cheap picture frames together to make beautiful centerpieces. I immediately drove to my local Dollar Tree and bought four frames to make the DIY lantern you see above.
Follow the instructions below for inspiration.
- Four 7×11 Picture Frames
- Artificial Flowers
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Flameless LED Candle
- Remove the paper and backing from the picture frames.
- Connect the frames together by hot gluing them into a square shape.
Make sure the glue has dried and set between the frames before moving on to the next section of the lantern.
I could have left the lantern plain, but I saw some flowers in my closet that would look perfect on my craft project. So I used my glue gun to adhere the flowers to the top and base of the lantern.
- Finally, I placed LED candles inside the lantern. I used flameless candles because I was worried that a lit candle would set the flowers on fire.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed photos and tutorial. If you try to do this project, please let me know how it turns out.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
