DIY Wooden Lantern Hook

This is my addition to the last installment of May's Oh My Heartsie Girl's Wordless Wednesday Linky Party!  More details below!

It's simple to create your own homes decor with this lantern hook tutorial!

I'm in love with lanterns!!  Like total head over heals love with lanterns.  I use them every chance I get.  I once got the opportunity to coordinate a wedding, guess what the theme was?  Yep, lanterns.  I have one by my front door, a few in my bedroom, I add them to my mantel, kitchen window... ok... I think it borderlines on obsession.

Hi, I'm Shannon, and I have a lantern obsession.

After seeing a pinterest photo of a lantern hook, I was in.  I searched and searched... and searched... for those pretty 4" plant hooks, and even with spring upon us and green houses going up, there were NONE that were smaller then 6".  So I found a substitute (3 3/'8" screw hooks), not quite as pretty, but they really do look rustic and nice.  The important thing, they work just fine.

So check out this quick DIY video on how to create this beautiful decor item!
