Step 1

Shake the paint and apply your preferred Indoor & Outdoor colour to the lanterns using the sponge sticks included in the set. Let the paint dry for 30 minutes.

Step 1

Step 2

Apply the Metallic paint to the edges of the lanterns to create a so-called patina effect. This will make the edges look like they’re oxidised metal!

Step 2

Step 3

Take the included snowflake stencil and place it on the lantern. Use a painting knife to apply the glitter paste to the stencil. This will give you a nice 3D effect because of the thicker layer. Experiment with the placement and size of your snowflakes to create a dynamic design. Let it dry for 30 minutes (or more depending on the thickness of the layer).

Step 3

Step 4

Now you can use the Effect Liner to add little decorative pearls or other 3D accents. Let the liner dry completely.

Step 4

That completes your new upcycled lanterns! You can use these tips on any old piece of home décor to make it more holiday appropriate. Enjoy your new favourite items!
