Girlfriend, this is not a big problem – all you need to do is find lanterns you like in any color, and spraypaint them! I had never spraypainted in my life until a few weeks ago, working on some DIY projects, and I’ve found it’s super easy.

If you can’t remove the glass from the lanterns or are nervous about getting paint on it, then you can also buy acrylic paint and paint them by hand. the Martha Stewart brand of acrylic paint at Michaels has some great metallics, I’ve used the gold paint before.

I know you said you don’t want to paint, but passing these along in case you get desperate.  I have these in black for centerpeices….for $7.99 and 11″ height, you can’t beat the price!

ETA: OP, are you sure your first linked lanterns weren’t painted brown?  They kind of look like it to me. ??

There are lots of Moroccan style copper lanterns in your price range- do a google search.

Ther was an ad  in the San Diego Craigslist recently for 12 copper candle langterns, but the ad has expired. You could try placing a wanted ad there.
