Pottery Barn Look-Alike

Maybe you noticed all of the lanterns in one of the latest Pottery Barn catalogues.  They filled them with candles and seashells.  I have wanted something to use as a centerpiece for my patio table and thought this would be perfect.  I live on the gulf coast.  I need a few seashells in my decor. So, did I order a $50-$80 lantern from Pottery Barn.....NOPE!  I took my 40% coupon to Michael's Craft Store (after looking a few other places first) and bought a beautiful lantern for about $15 (regularly $24.99)!  I bought a $3.00 candle, and the shells were free from my mother-in-law.  I tried to collect my own shells while at the beach last week, but I didn't find any that were big enough.  FYI: You can buy a package of beautiful shells at Hobby Lobby....maybe they have them at Michael's. I don't know, I didn't look.  I still want to buy a starfish to prop up against my candle.

Here is my version:
