Lantern candles are great ways to dress up any space in the home. They work whether you put them indoors or outdoors. Having the right lantern with the right amount of light can set the overall ambiance of a room. If you’re placing them outdoors, go for the brighter ones.

Because it's do-it-yourself, you have free rein on the color, size, and shape of the lantern candle holders.
