Dollar Store Decorative Lanterns

I initially thought up this idea specifically for Halloween but now that they’re done, I feel like they’re the perfect decorative lanterns for any occasion! All you need is a little spray paint!

I received free product from Rustoleum to complete this project! As always, these opinions are 100% my own.

Start by pulling the orange plastic out of the lantern.

Next you will start your spray painting! I used matte black, gold, silver and copper. Rustoleum’s metallics are my all time favorite for golds and silvers.
