Lantern with glass inserts in a colorful floral pattern.

Summer decoration at its best: lantern with flowery light effects

Project from Cintia -

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 will need…

  • d-c-fix® Static Premium Miraflores window foil
  • d-c-fix® high-gloss gold adhesive foil
  • d-c-fix® application kit with smoothing blade & utility knife
  • d-c-fix® application fluid or spray bottle with water
  • Measuring tape

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Lantern and candle (battery-powered)

Let’s go!

You can start the DIY using this d-c-fix® tutorial


You have everything you need? Then get started!

Step 1

Measure the width and length of the glass inserts for the lantern.

Step 2

Mark the measured values on the back of the d-c-fix® Miraflores window foil using a pencil.

Step 3

Use the utility knife to cut the foil along the marking with a 1 mm deduction.

Step 4

Now peel off the backing film from the window foil.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

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.

You’re done!
