Who would have thought you can make so many cute things out of picture frames, I had no clue. I found this DIY Dollar Tree Farmhouse Lantern on Pinterest and fell in love with it.

Mine is not that fancy, it was my first time ever making one but I love out it turned out and have added in with my living room decor.

This lantern is so easy to make. Head over to Dollar Tree and grab 4 8×10 picture frames and 1 8×8 square picture frame.

Also, grab some hot glue, E6000 (optional), pliers and rope and let’s get started.

  1. 2. Using the needle nose pliers, break apart the square picture frame and remove the tiny metal pieces holding the sides together.
  2. These will be used for the top of the lantern.
  1. 3. With the hot glue gun, glue them to the top of lantern at each corner, making a point at the center.
  2. I actually used the hot glue and E6000 together for a stronger hold.

  1. 4. Optional, for more realistic detail, paint a plastic shower curtain ring or rope (as I did) and add it to the top. It adds a nice touch.
