Hello DIY enthusiasts! Today, I'm excited to share a simple yet charming project that brings the beauty of nature into your home. I recently crafted a Wood Slice Lantern, and I'm thrilled to guide you through the process. Let's get started!

Materials You'll Need:

  • Branch
  • Saw
  • Hot glue gun
  • Vase or similar container
  • String lights

How to Make Your Wood Slice Lantern:

1. Find the Perfect Branch:
Begin by selecting a branch of your desired thickness. Ensure the branch is thoroughly dry to prevent any cracks during the crafting process.

2. Slice it Up:
Use a saw to cut round slices of the branch at your preferred thickness.

3. Prepare the Vase:
Clean your chosen vase thoroughly, providing a clean surface for the glue to adhere to.

4. Glue the Wood Slices:
Fire up your trusty hot glue gun and start attaching the wood slices to the vase. Get creative with the arrangement and spacing.

5. Let it Set:
Allow the glued wood slices to dry completely. This ensures a secure bond and longevity for your lantern.

6. Introduce the Light:
Once the glue is dry, delicately place your string lights into the vase. Watch as your lantern comes to life with a warm, inviting glow.

Why I Love It:

This Wood Slice Lantern not only adds a touch of rustic charm to any space but also serves a dual purpose as a versatile vase. The natural warmth of the wood combined with the soft illumination of the lights creates a cozy ambiance.

Crafting this Wood Slice Lantern was not only a delightful experience but also an opportunity to bring a piece of nature indoors. If you decide to embark on this project, share your results in the comments below. I'd love to see your take on this charming DIY lantern!
