COLORSHOT Holiday Lantern DIY

Light up your holiday season with a lantern decked in boughs of holly (fa la la la la)! This Holiday Lantern DIY from Jen Bryant Design couldn't be easier thanks to a little help from COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint. Whether you're going for a traditional Christmas motif or something with a little more flair, you'll find any and every color you're looking for in our spray paint collection. Then add on a festive bow, some greenery and a candle, and you're ready for a cozy Christmas glow to help light Santa's way from the chimney to your tree. After all, you've been extra good this year and don't want to miss out on all of those presents he'll be delivering! 

What you need:

- COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint (Blackout and Lucky Penny used for this project)

- Lantern

- Thick ribbon in desired colors

- Winter greenery

- Ornament

- Candle

COLORSHOT Holiday Lantern DIY

Make sure your lantern is clean and free of any dust. Remove (if you can) anything you don't want painted (like glass panes). Otherwise you can tape off pieces with painter's tape. If your lantern is made from a shiny metal, you'll first want to apply a basecoat of Primer. Spray several light coats of color onto the frame until you are happy with the coverage, letting dry between coats. Jen used Blackout on the frame and Lucky Penny on the roof for a pretty pop of metallic shine.

Once your lantern has dried, put it all back together and add greenery and a bow to the top. You can even tie on a festive ornament - get creative with it! Then add your candle and you're ready to deck the halls with a pretty new lantern this season.
