Make your own custom paper lanterns with this amazing tutorial by INFUSEDgoods. They’re made with popsicle sticks and tissue paper, and lit with a battery-operated tealight. Bonus: the lanterns fold up flat for easy storage! I love them! This looks like such a fun project, plus it’s so pretty once it’s finished!

I love this version of the project, with vertically hanging lanterns. Wouldn’t these be pretty for wedding or shower decorations? This would also make a fun sleepover or birthday party project for tweens or teens.

You can find all the supplies you need for this project at the dollar store. Battery-operated tealights are sold two for a dollar at my local dollar store.

Project Estimate:

  • Popsicle sticks. $1
  • Tissue paper, on hand or $1
