Easy Crochet Lanterns

I’ve always loved lanterns. They are so pretty and tranquil with their warm light emanating around your porch or outdoor space. (Entering the giveaway? Click on “Read More” below to read the full post and scroll down to the end to leave a comment – thank you for stopping by!)

I also love the look of the Solomon’s Knot stitch with thread – it is very open and looks like macrame. I thought combining the Solomon’s Knot stitch with some mason jars would make for some great home decor projects.
