Love is in the air, dust is in the shop!

February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, usually with candy, flowers and gifts for loved ones on the 14th. We’re quickly approaching that special day, so we ask, “Have you started on that special project for your Valentine?”

Good for you if your answer was yes. If not, don’t worry! You still have time to start on a project that will be transformed into a meaningful gift for that special someone. And by project, we don’t mean going to the store in search of the finest chocolate or prettiest flowers. By project, we mean a semi-handmade item that will light up your Valentine’s world. Literally.

Without further ado, we’d like you to meet one of our favorites: the Luminary Lantern Kit. If you asked us to describe the kit in 3 words, we’d tell you – easy to assemble. There are a few wood parts and assembly steps required, but for the most part, it’s a simple DIY project that can be completed in a few hours or in a few evenings.

Luminary Lantern Kit

This kit is designed for use with a color-changing LED tealight, which makes it easy to match your home décor or mood. It has 12 available color options, all controlled through a remote that works up to 10 feet away. Additionally, the kit was designed for use with 4 vellum panels. This kit comes standard with translucent plain panels, but you can spice it up by ordering one of the four decorator panel packs here.

Once built, the panels on the kit are easy to change. Just lift off the top of the lantern, and slide in the panels of your choice.  The seasons, sports, travel and advertising panel packs will soon be accompanied by new choices – vintage car, young children, hunting and nature panel packs are in the works are we speak!
