    If basic string lights aren't cutting it for you, then it's time to add some Christmas lanterns to your holiday display. They can function as a centerpiece, light up your yard, or just add some extra glow to corners of your house. Whether you want to totally DIY a lantern from scratch, or just want to dress up your existing lanterns for the holidays, we've got ideas for you on this list.


         O Lantern Tree

     It's Christmas, so literally anything and everything can be      Christmas tree shaped. Turn paper cones into glittered          trees and cut stars into them. Place a tea light inside and      it'll function like a lantern.




   It Takes A Village

      This creative display takes multiple zinc houses and turns         them into a winter village. Use copper string lights for a           more vintage vibe.



Winter Wonderland

Can you even believe these pretty lanterns are made out of paper? This takes origami to the next-level.



Berry Awesome

Cranberries and fresh cut juniper look stunning tucked inside a set of mason jars—especially when they're illuminated with candlelight.



   All The Ornaments

     These DIY ornaments are a little larger in size,               making them the perfect container for a set of string       lights.



    Winter Wonderland

    Pretty up your holiday table with the soft glow of this       DIY centerpiece. Epsom salts create a snow-covered     effect on mason jars.




   Vintage Vibes

   Instead of standard string lights, light up your front yard     with mini lanterns. It'll add an ethereal, vintage vibe to       your holiday decor.



Ice, Ice Baby

Bet you didn't know you could make a lantern out of ice. Minds = blown.



Candy Cane Lane

These paper lanterns are stupid easy to make. Choose red and white paper for a candy cane theme.



Traditional, But Not Boring 

Traditional decor doesn't have to look staid or dated. Fill white lanterns with red ornaments and tie with red bows for a fun accent.
