How adorable are these paper lanterns? This would be a great decoration for an outdoor party or a wedding. This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Once Wed.
For this project, you will need:
-- A string of lights
-- Craft/construction paper
-- Screw punch
-- Pencil and eraser
You can find all of these items at a craft store.
Cut out the paper lanterns
Print off this template and place the template on top of the construction paper and cut it out. Then, use the pencil and ruler to draw straight lines where the dotted lines are on the template.
Use a pencil to draw on the letters for your message. Then, use the screw punch to punch out holes for the light to show through. Then, glue all of the edges together and let the glue dry completely.
Attach lanterns to lights
Cut an "X" in the top of the paper lantern and put it over the lightbulbs.
Hang up the lanterns in your living space or outside and enjoy!
