This tutorial shows you how to make a coastal Hampton's style lantern using picture frames from the Dollar Tree store. The perfect coastal style for your home decor.
What you need
6 dollar tree frames (mine were white with kind of an aged look
Hot Glue Gun
Coastal decor is very popular right now, thanks to the increase in Hampton’s style houses and decor. The clean white crisp look of coastal beach property is calming and inviting. You can create your very own coastal decorations for your home for a low budget. These DIY coastal lanterns are perfect and can be made for under $10, which means you can make 2-3 of them and style them in clusters, try making these lanterns, in different sizes to create a cluster-styled corner in your home or on your patio. Seal them with marine varnish for an all-weather finish if you are using these beach lanterns outside.
Next, add dabs of the E6000 glue to the backside left and right side of the frame. In between those dabs of E6000 glue, add dabs of hot glue (you must work quickly as the hot glue dries very quickly once it hits the frame)
Next, add one beach frame to each side where the glue has been added. Add the last frame to make the bottom shape with the same process.
For the top part of Hampton’s Coastal lantern, repeat the same process with the glue but to the long side of the frames and then add some glue to the center.
Let the coastal Lantern dry overnight!
