those look like paper punches were used. you can buy them at any major craft/scrapbooking store. looks to me like they were modge-podged over glass hurricanes or votives. i love the look! i think it would be easily to replicate….especially with a die cutting machine. you can also buy pre die-cut paper in the scrapbook section of michael’s, jo-ann, hobby lobby, etc. and just wrap them around ๐Ÿ™‚

Those are gorgeous! If you know someone with a cricut they could likely try to cut a sheet like the lanterns at the front (the ones in the middle would be way too complex for a cricut and wouldn’t turn out the way you’d like), and then you could wrap it around a glass votive. OR you could look and see if you could find any scrapbook paper that’s already cut all fancy like that, I know I’ve seen some pretty complex ones at Michaels!

I’m in love with ruffled blog, and I too plan to do these moroccan inspired lanterns.  Good luck!

Oh, that looks tough and time-intensive. They are gorgeous though. I have seen a method where you pierce a nail into the metal can, but I don’t think it would be as intricate — but maybe you could come up with a nice design, like letters or a simple swirl?
