    Get the most out of your lantern

    You may feel that your options are limited when it comes to using your lantern, however there are lots of creative ways to decorate and reuse that will give any space the wow factor. Here are some of our favourite ways to use a lantern:

    Lanterns with pillar candles inside

    Go classic

    There is no denying that a lantern with a single pillar candle is a timeless look, but this doesn't mean that you can't experiment a little.

    Try placing two or three pillar candles of different sizes into the same lantern to create a staggered effect.

    Lanterns with fairy lights inside

    Light it up

    If you wish to recreate a warming glow without the use of candles, then fairy lights are a simple and inexpensive alternative.

    Choose from a wide variety of fairy lights and light up a room at the touch of a switch.

    Lantern with succulent plant inside

    A natural touch

    Lanterns don't necessarily need a light element. To bring some nature into your home, why not try placing a potted plant inside your lantern?

    Remember to allow for air to circulate so, if your lantern has a door, keep it open slightly.

    Lanterns with Christmas baubles inside

    Tis' the season

     Another fun way to use your lantern is to fill it with seasonal decorations to have a festive touch to your home.

    This doesn't have to be exclusively for Christmas either - why not try mini pumpkins and squash for Autumn?
