How to Make a Luminara Fall Flowers Lantern
Decorate for autumn by winding your favorite fall florals around a rustic lantern! Complete the look with the soft glow of a Luminara real flame-effect candle. The candle's flickering flame might fool your friends, but you can rest assured the artificial candle surrounded by flowered accents is completely safe.
Clean lantern glass and insert Luminara candle.
Create a bow approximately 6" to 8" across with 2 loops per side. The remainder of the ribbon should become a streamer down to the base of the lantern. At that point, add another loop to accent the base.Tie off both sets of loops with either chenille stems or wire.
Tie floral pick
Using your favorite fall floral pick, bend the end of the pick back toward the head to create a loop. Tightly tie the first ribbon loop set to the front of the pick.
Drape streamer & secure
Drape the streamer down to the bottom of the lantern secure it with another pick or pumpkin tie, or glue it to the second loop set.
Secure second grouping
Using a couple of Glue Dots, secure the second grouping to the base of the lantern. If you have any extra ribbon, wrap it around the candle as a band and secure it with Glue Dots.
Glue in embellishments
Go back to the loop sets and glue in any additional decorative items including leaves, berries and other fall embellishments.
