I say awesome because there are so many amazing projects that can be made from scrap wood. So protect those scraps from anyone at all costs and stick with me through this post and I will show you how to make your own scrap wood lanterns.These lanterns will work fabulous on the front porch, in the backyard or inside as a decor item on a console table.
