These paper garden lanterns exude such craftsmanship and yet they’ll take you hardly any time and effort to create! We’ve made it simple for you to craft — simply download, print, cut, and assemble. We’ve included two types of files for you to choose from. If you are using a cutting machine, use our SVG cut files. If you plan to cut by hand, use our PDF templates. There are two sizes of lanterns for you to choose from… Why not make a few of each? To assemble, use a straightedge for folding and glue dots, a glue roller or hot glue to adhere. Once complete, light up your lanterns with LED candles and enjoy! Who knew it could be so simple to bring such light to your life?
Tools & Materials
- Scissors or Cutting Machine
- Glue Roller or Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Mini Antique Metal Brads
- Metallic Text Weight Paper- Copper, Bronze, and Ionised
- Lia Griffith Vellum Paper Pack

We used Paper Paper’s metallic text weight paper in Copper, Bronze, and Ionised, but feel free to try other colors as well! For our vellum windows, we used Lia Griffith Vellum Paper Pack. We used brads to dress up the handles of our lanterns. Remember to use an LED candle and not a real candle — it’s easy to forget that these lanterns are made entirely of paper, but they are and they will burn easily!
