I’m always looking for new ways to dress up plain paper lanterns.  (They’re one of my favorite dollar store items!)  Jill from Meet the Dubiens decorated her daughter’s bedroom in a Pottery Barn Kids theme with lots of cute owls and trees.  To compliment the PBK decorations, she made owls out of some paper lanterns that were left over from a birthday party.  If you aren’t into owls, get creative and use the same techniques to make whatever animals you want!  [how to make an owl lantern]

  • Scrapbook paper, on hand
