With New Year’s behind us, we are coming up soon on Valentine’s Day! Okay, so it may not seem all that close now, but the next few weeks will race by for most of us in a blur as we are taking care of start-of-the-year chores. Before you know it, it’ll be here.
That means it is never too soon to jump into Valentine’s Day crafts! In this video tutorial, I will show you how you can make a beautiful, romantic lantern to celebrate this special day. Believe it or not, all you need to create this project is a plain old glass jar and a few other basic supplies!
There is a lot you can do with a Valentine’s Day lantern, but I would say that this project is especially ideal if you are trying to put together a special romantic dinner. The lantern can shed a lovely soft glow over the table. Sprinkle some flower petals nearby, and you will have achieved a stunning effect.
Below, I share the materials and tools you need for this project, followed by written instructions and the video. I want to make a quick note regarding one of the materials, specifically the adhesive paper.
Adhesive paper is definitely easiest to use, but if you don’t have any, don’t despair. If you have some double-stick tape to use instead, you can just attach that to the back of some regular paper and go with that as an alternative. You’ll just need to be extra mindful of the edges (I’ll explain that later on in the steps).

Now you have created your own romantic lantern for Valentine’s Day! Surprised how fast and easy it is? It really is incredible what you can create in just a few minutes with supplies you likely already have on hand.
There are a lot of simple ways you can vary this project once you understand it. For example, you can exchange the red spray paint for pink. You could even try combining a few different shades of red, pink and white for an interesting effect.
Another idea would be to take the adhesive cut-out idea and run with it. Instead of just one big heart, you could for example create a lot of little adhesive hearts. You might be able to think up other ideas as well.
Whatever you decide to do, presentation can go a long way toward turning an ordinary dinner into a romantic evening with someone special. This lantern will help to create the atmosphere you are looking for, which should make for a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
