Simple Holiday Lantern Supplies

  • Lanterns – any size you like are fine, these are perfect for a table, I found them at Hobby Lobby for $5
  • Filler aka “snow” – I used decorative filler that I found at Michaels near the fairy garden supplies
  • Santa, trees or other small items – it’s best to find the lanterns first, and then choose the items to add
  • Tape – if the lanterns have holes in the bottom, you will need this

The lanterns that I used are actually meant for candles, so they had holes in the bottom. Simple clear tape closed up the holes so that the filler wouldn’t fall through.

Now add the filler to the bottom, and add your figure. When you are looking for items to add to the lanterns, be sure to check the Christmas ornament aisle. You can easily remove the hook for the ornament and make them into a figure, and they are, most of the time, small enough to fit into the lanterns.
