Bottling up those easy breezy beach vibes is as easy as 1-2-3! (Have I hooked you yet?) This DIY coastal lantern captures the spirit of the shore, and gives you a personalized piece of paradise. Ready to get started? Follow the step-by-step instructions below to create the DIY coastal lantern of your dreams!
DIY Coastal Lantern Materials
Fill the bottom of the lantern with a layer of sand, and set your tall pillar candle in the center.
Next place coastal-themed fillers around the candle. We styled ours with natural driftwood pieces, starfish, and shells, but you can use a mix of any sea-inspired objects that speaks to you!
Tie it all together with a burlap bow, and take in that ta-da moment! You’ve created an effortlessly chic coastal centerpiece.
For the optional fourth step add a few decorative touches to enhance the display! To show off our DIY project we paired the lantern with a couple branches, a whitewash tray, linen runner, and fishnet for a fresh and natural look. Don’t forget to light the candle and let your creation shine!
