By day: an eye-catcher with a colorful summery look. In the evening: the perfect companion for relaxing moments on the balcony or terrace. Yes, it’s a real jewel, this lantern with glass inserts in the design of a lush colorful flower meadow using the d-c-fix® Miraflores and high-gloss gold window foils.
Especially in the evening, when it is dark, it shows what it can do: conjuring up vibrant lighting effects that make the time spent outdoors even more enjoyable. Tip for upcoming birthdays or invitations: the DIY floral lantern is also great as a gift.

You can start the DIY using this d-c-fix® tutorial
You have everything you need? Then get started!
Measure the width and length of the glass inserts for the lantern.
Mark the measured values on the back of the d-c-fix® Miraflores window foil using a pencil.
Use the utility knife to cut the foil along the marking with a 1 mm deduction.
Now peel off the backing film from the window foil.
Now apply the foil to the glass surface of the lantern, which has previously been sprayed with water or application fluid, smooth it down firmly – and finally use the smoothing blade to squeeze out the trapped excess liquid.
For the decorative finish, draw shapes as desired for the golden accents on the reverse side of the d-c-fix® high-gloss gold adhesive foil, cut them out, and attach them to the lantern.
Small air pockets can form, especially when covering larger surfaces – such as the top and side surfaces here. You can puncture these bubbles with a fine needle and then carefully smooth them out with the squeegee.
