Paint the frames with white chalk paint or stain them.

Squeeze E6000 on one side of a frame & place another on in perpendicularly.

Zip tie the two frames together while the glue dries.

Glue another frame to the opposite side of the bottom frame. Zip tie in place.

Glue the last frame on top. Full video tutorial in the post.

Glue a thin wood dowel or bbq skewer diagonally across the bottom frame.

Glue a second one in an X pattern.

Repeat in all four frames.

Create a top for the lantern with craft sticks.

Cut to fit two sticks across the top.

Attach the craft sticks across the top of the DIY lantern.

Paint the wood plaque

& sand it to distress.

Glue two mini Jenga blocks together & paint them.

Glue the plaque & blocks to the top of the lantern.

Cut a piece of rope and glue one end to each side of the mini blocks for a handle.

That's it! Your DIY Dollar Tree lantern is ready to display!
