DIY Dollar Tree Candlestick Lantern
My craft stash is overflowing with so many glass pieces that I’ve accumulated from thrift and dollar stores. I can’t help myself! When I see something that can be transformed I get it and squirrel it away for that elusive someday I’m gonna…
Well for a few of those pieces that someday is today! Let me show you how I made my DIY Dollar Tree Candlestick Lantern.

Paint the Pieces
This soap dish came from the local thrift store, the candlestick is from dollar tree and the glass pillar is left over from our wedding 10 years ago. Did I mention that I’m also a pack rat?! Well that’s why this craft didn’t cost me a dime to make once I got around to it! I even had the black spray paint in my arsenal!
Glue the Candlestick Lantern
Next step is to glue them together. I like to use E6000 and hot glue for a super good bond. I still always pick my projects up from the base though just as a precaution.
Decorate the Dollar Tree Candlestick
Time to decorate! That’s always the fun part! I got the pick and the box of pine cones at the dollar store and parts from a thrift store wreath I arranged them around the vase. The battery powered candle is from the dollar tree.
Candlestick Lantern Needs More
It looked a little plain so I dug into my craft stash and found smaller pine cones and this pick of white things. I removed the hangers from the pine cones and snipped several pieces off of the white then arranged them into the greenery.
One Last Touch
So I thought it needed a little bit more, I took the glitter blast and sprayed the vase. It’s perfect! I love how the red candle glistens through the glitter.
Alright. That was really easy! What do you think? Are you going to try making a diy dollar tree candlestick lantern? I’d love to see what you do. Please share photos and thoughts in the comments below.
