- Glass jar/mason jar (STRAIGHT/SMOOTH SIDED)
- Pressed flowers
- Mod Podge (MATTE)
- 4 feet Twine
- Tealight candles
Step 1: Add pressed flowers to jar
- Paint a small area of the outside of the jar with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
It’s best to work in small areas, as the Mod Podge starts to dry very quickly.
Press dried flowers into Mod Podge.
- Once all the flowers have been placed on the jar, let the Mod Podge dry for five minutes.
Cover the entire jar with a thin layer of Mod Podge. This will ensure all the flowers stick, and it creates an even texture for any glass that’s showing on the lantern.
Step 2: Tie the twine
Starting from the centre of the twine, loop it around the mouth of the jar several times. Make a knot and then tie a bow out of the remaining twine
- Add a candle and light it to see your lantern glow.
Your pressed flower lantern is complete!
