Elevate Your Easter Decor with a Stunning Lantern Topper Tutorial

In this video, Julie with Southern Charm Wreaths, will guide you through the process of crafting a vibrant Easter lantern topper using silk flowers and ribbons. So, grab your toolbox, and let’s get started!

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Lantern (any size will work)
  • Assorted silk flowers and greenery
  • Ribbon in various widths and patterns
  • Zip ties
  • Rustic wire
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Glue

Creating the Base: Start by selecting a lantern size that complements your space. Remember, the lantern topper should enhance, not overpower, the lantern itself.

Next, assemble your silk flowers and greenery to create a lush base for your lantern swag. Trim and arrange the elements, ensuring they don’t obstruct the lantern’s visibility.

Crafting the Bow: Choose a mix of ribbons in complementary colors and patterns for a dynamic bow. Follow Julie’s expert tips for creating perfectly proportioned loops and tails.

Once your bow is complete, attach it securely to the lantern swag using floral wire. Don’t forget to fluff and shape the ribbons for a polished look.

Adding Ornaments: For a festive touch, incorporate Easter-themed ornaments like carrots. Secure them to the swag using wire or hot glue, ensuring they’re evenly distributed for visual balance.

Final Touches: Take a moment to assess the arrangement and make any necessary adjustments. Add additional greenery or flowers to fill in any gaps and create a cohesive look.

Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement, attach the lantern topper to your lantern using rustic wire. Ensure it’s securely fastened, then admire your handiwork!

Conclusion: With your silk flower lantern topper complete, you’ll have a stunning centerpiece to elevate your Easter decor. Whether displayed indoors or outdoors, this eye-catching accent is sure to impress.

Until next time, happy crafting!
