Hey there! You may have seen a teaser of this project on our Instagram last week! I’m so excited to share it today
I got busy making this Wall Scone Lantern. I’m totally in love with the industrial look of it and the copper color on the metal is so fun! The best part is you can make it for under $15 and you can make 3 out of the supplies you need!
This Aluminum Tile is awesome! It is used a lot for easy, DIY backsplashes and it can be cut with scissors! Start by cutting a 6″ piece off of the end of the tile. *Remember this tile will make 3 sconces so save the other piece!
Now for the paint! With a foam brush, I barely brushed over the aluminum tile with Rust-Oleum Metallic Accents in Copper Penny color. This paint is so fun and it comes in a ton of colors!
While it’s drying, you can stain your board! I chose to stain mine with Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut Stain.
Just wipe one coat on with a foam brush, let it sit for about 5 minutes and wipe it down with a clean cloth to even the color out!
If you are going to hang this outside, you need to give the wood 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Spar Varnish to protect it
Finish off by sanding down the edges of the board (it’s okay if your sander touches the edge of the tile, it just makes it look more distressed). I used our favorite Ryobi Corner Cat to distress.
Now, it’s ready to hang a Mason Jar Lantern on it!
