Hey there, DIYers! We know that planning a wedding or any event can be expensive, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. That’s why we’re excited to share this DIY project with you, using materials mostly sourced from the Dollar Tree, one of our go-to spots for affordable crafting supplies.

In today’s tutorial, we’re going to show you how to create high-end hanging lanterns for your wedding or event, using mostly materials from the Dollar Tree. This project is inspired by some decor we found on Pinterest from a luxurious tropical destination wedding.

See how we made this gorgeous hanging lantern for just a few dollars!
