The thought of spray-painting the lantern red seemed rather daunting to me, but Brie gives easy directions for removing the glass, which would make spray-painting quite simple. Summer would be a great time to paint these lanterns, because it could be easily done outdoors.
Brie also suggests these lanterns could be painted in red, white, or blue for patriotic summer decor. And wouldn't they also be pretty in beachy colors?
This is a fantastic idea and one that I hope to use in my own decorating (or, as Brie suggests, in gifting) this Christmas!
