Simple DIY Lantern

Materials

1 6-outlet power strip
1 6-inch diameter cylindrical white lampshade
Hot glue gun
2 8-inch embroidery hoops
2 10-inch embroidery hoops
1 single light socket extension cord
1 threaded eye bolt

Instructions

  1. Determine the closest power source to where the lantern will hang and plug in the power strip
  2. Apply a 2-inch strip of hot glue to the inside of one 8-inch wooden hoops, then slide it over the lampshade and press the glued section against the shade. Hold for one minute until dry
  3. Glue a 10-inch hoop a couple of inches above the 8-inch hoop, attaching it to the opposite side of the shade
  4. Repeat the process with another 8- and 10-inch hoop
  5. Thread a single light socket extension cord through the top of the lantern and secure the light bulb end to the inside of the lampshade

Tip: Screw a threaded eye bolt in desired location for the lamp to hang. Drape the extension cord over the threaded eye hook, and plug in to power strip. Additional extension cords may be needed to reach desired power source.
