Craftymommy posted her brilliant lantern idea at the Dollar Store Crafts Facebook page. She took four dollar store frames (the kind with two panels), and some handmade paper, also found at the dollar store, and combined them into these great lanterns. I think they look a lot more upscale than $5 each! Craftymommy has also done a lot of other creative things with dollar store treasures. [check out the lanterns and other cool projects here]

Project Estimate:

  • 4 frames, $1
  • Handmade paper pack, $1
  • Strong glue like e6000, on hand

Total: $5
