DIY Velum Lanterns

Love these lanterns.

They are perfect for decorating a pool deck.. or lighting a path to the beach, your reception etc.

Not only are they incredibly chic, they are inexpensive and easy to make.. three things that make these hard to resist.

These are vintage Martha Stewart (5 years ago)

Vellum Shields How-To
You’ll need 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheets of vellum paper in the color of your choice, chopsticks, and 7-day candles in glass vessels (sold at supermarkets).

Sandwich the candle between 2 sheets of vellum, clipping the sheets together with 2 sets of unseparated wooden chopsticks 1 inch in from edges.
