I am trying to make this lantern here but I can't figure out how to make the details in the top part (Circled in red).

enter image description here

And this is the 3D view:

3D View of the top part

I have also tried using the boolean modifier but this strange artifacts on the edges of the boolean area appears:

So, is there any other way to make this without using boolean or am I doing the boolean operation wrongly?

I think you can do it this way but I used a higher topology:

  • $\begingroup$ I am still getting the strange artifacts regardless if i made all the faces quads, is there any other method that you could suggest? (I am using blender 2.8 btw if that helps) $\endgroup$ – E.S Feb 21 at 20:00
  • $\begingroup$ you should not have any artifacts, perhaps share this part of your file: blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com $\endgroup$ – moonboots Feb 21 at 20:02
  • $\begingroup$ Here is the .blend file: drive.google.com/open?id=1XUL4NZ57xZ71oRRaCy3QfmFHDBIShFD5 (Apologies, I was having trouble uploading the file to blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com) $\endgroup$ – E.S Feb 21 at 20:19
  • $\begingroup$ please share the version with the problem ;) (with the artifact, after applying the boolean) $\endgroup$ – moonboots Feb 21 at 20:22
  • $\begingroup$ It's on the file, just hidden. It should be inside the scene collection, collection and it is labelled "Top Part Boolean Test". $\endgroup$ – E.S Feb 21 at 20:27
