Revamped Paper Lanterns

There are some items that I see at Dollar Tree that I always grab every time I see a shipment because my local store tends to sell out of them quickly, and paper lanterns are one of those things.  And since I pick up a few here and a few there, I have managed to amass quite a collection!  Most of them are in solid colors, but what if you want something a little fancier?  Sara at Creative Jewish Mom had some sun-faded lanterns in need of a revamp, so she used tissue paper to add some bright stripes to them.  This is a cute, easy way to make them match your decor, or to dress them up to fit a party theme or wedding colors!  [how to make tissue paper embellished lanterns]

Project estimate:

  • Paper lanterns, $1 and up
  • Tissue paper, on hand or $1
  • Mod Podge, on hand

Total:  $1 and up
