Rustic Wood Decorative Lantern

This is a simple to make rustic wood lantern for decoration. This is based off of Jen Woodhouse’s Lantern plans. I used entirely leftover scraps from prior projects.

The base was made from 3 cut planks of pallet wood, the main body was from 2x2 scraps and the top was 1x2 scraps. The handle was from an old wire hangar I cut in half and bent. It’s secured inside with a screw and washer, the entire project used 18g brad nails and wood glue.

It’s a simple afternoon project that you can paint or stain in whatever color or finish you’d like. I did this one in a white chalk paint. I think I’m going to make the next ones with some X features on the sides.
