You better go to the nearest Dollar store and purchase a couple of wooden blocks for this wonderful DIY project idea by All Things Trish Wells on YouTube. You can make a beautiful lantern with just a few simple crafting materials and these easy-to-follow instructions. Make one for yourself or give it as a gift, whichever you decide on, you or your loved one will surely love it. Proceed to read down below for the full directions and watch the video tutorial as well.
Place a mason jar on your work surface, then lay a few blocks around the bottom of the jar spacing them slightly smaller than the size of the wooden block, and make sure that you space them apart evenly. Place the second layer of blocks making sure to lay each block on top of the spaces on the bottom layer, then once done assembling the layers, hot glue the pieces together, alternate the colors of the blocks on each layer, and repeat until desired height.
You can also lay the blocks standing on their long side instead of placing them flatly for a different style. Once done building the blocks, place a small candle jar or glass inside, then put a candle inside, and light it up. You can also stain or paint the blocks with whatever color you want.
