• Black hanging lanterns
  • Assorted pink and white ribbons, various widths
  • Pillar candles
  • Hot glue gun


  1. Gently loosen the glass on the four sides of the lantern.

  2. Hot glue gun the ribbon to one corner of the lantern. Wait for the glue to dry and then weave the ribbon through the lantern bars. Hot glue gun the ribbon to each corner of the lantern to hold the ribbon in place.

  3. Trim the excess ribbon and glue the end to the last corner of the lantern.

  4. Replace the glass panes in the lanterns. This ensures that the ribbon will not be exposed to the flame.

  5. Hang from various heights and on top of the tabletop. Place pillar candles inside and light.
