For the glass panels, I used the glass from clip-it-frames. They are the ones that don't have frames but instead hold together with little metal clips. Just use the glass! You could also use any clear glass vase, dish, or bowl. Personally, I love the square shape, but do what you love!

To make the lantern, gather fresh fallen leaves (not dry, old ones).
Place them between sheets of newspaper overnight with a book on top to make them nice and flat.
Leaves are applied to glass with Mod Podge. Thin strips of metallic tape join the glass panels.
