DIY: Flannel Lanterns


One of my favorite stores is Free People. I just love their bohemian inspired clothes and the creative ways they decorate their stores. Well, the fall displays are up and I’m loving the flannel canvas lanterns I recently spotted. I also thought they would make such a perfect decoration for your reception. With so many fabric options, there are tons of ways to put your own spin on these babies! The Free People team were sweet enough to share a great video tutorial with us today on how you can make these for your wedding, rehearsal dinner or next party!


Ok, now you are ready to get crafting!

Thanks so much to Free People for contributing this DIY. You can see more of their DIYs on their blog every Wednesday.
