Lanterns are a great way to decorate your home inside and out, providing a protective cover for candles in all sorts of gorgeous designs.

The shape of a traditional lantern has its roots in history. Ancient Egyptians used them to light their way when they crossed the desert, helping them avoid dangerous creatures and traps. Many civilizations followed suit, making lamps out of clay pots with fabric stretched across their openings to hold burning oil or wax. Today we have far more sophisticated and delicate designs available.
