DIY: Autumn Lantern

Hey everyone!
I wanted to create something fall inspired because of all the beautiful trees in the park. I collected a bunch of pretty leaves in the park and therefore I decided to make a fall lantern that is made of just a marmalade jar and those leaves!



You only need:
- A marmalade Jar or any empty jar
- Leaves (I pressed them in a book to dry and flatten them)
- Mod Podge (I'm using the german Art Potch for this)
- Glue
- Packaging string



This is just an idea how you could create your own lantern. You can adjust the leaves how you want it and you don't even have to use the string for the opening! Just experiment!

I hope you enjoy this tutorial and if you have any questions, feel free to comment bellow!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
