Need a conversation starter? Fill painted lanterns with family photos, and bring on the memories.
Step 2: Apply an even coat of a spray-on primer. We used Krylon ColorMaster Primer ($6.99; krylon.com for stores). Then paint desired color with a ½-inch angled brush. We used a sample pint of Mantis Green by Benjamin Moore ($6.99 for 16 oz.; benjaminmoore.com). When dry, remove tape.
Step 3: Measure the glass panes on the lantern, and print photos to corresponding dimensions. (Style tip: Print all photos in black and white for a cohesive look.)
Step 4: Secure photos on the inside with transparent tape. Illuminate with flameless candles.
