Remove the glass and backing from your frames.
Place the frame opening over the desired vellum pattern and trace
the inside perimeter of the frame using the pencil. Cut out the
vellum using scissors or trimmer and erase any visible pencil marks.
Thoroughly clean your glass surfaces. Using
the craft stick, apply a thin line of E6000 glue to the inside of
the frame casing to secure the glass onto the frame. Allow adhesive
to thoroughly dry and set. Secure the vellum onto each glass frame
by following the manufacturer’s instructions for use of the vellum
glue dots. Using the vellum dot adhesive will give your lantern a
clean appearance. Repeat steps for remaining pieces.
Glue 2 frames perpendicular to each other along
the 6” edge, forming an “L”. Use the craft stick to apply a thin
line of E6000 at intersecting edges, being careful not to use too
much adhesive or else the glue will seep out between the corner
edges. Proceed gluing the two remaining frames in the same matter.
Allow adhesive to set thoroughly. Glue the two L’s together to
complete the main body of your lantern, forming a square. Allow glue
to set. Place a flameless candle in the center of your vellum
lantern. For visual interest, you may add pedestal feet to the base
of your vellum lantern.
Optional step for pedestal feet:
Paint wood spools and let dry. Use E6000 to
glue the finished wood spools at the intersecting edges of each
frame corner. Allow to set and dry.
your safety, we recommend using a flameless candle.
