Beautifully Decorated DIY Paper Lanterns

Paper lanterns are cool, simple in crafting and an ideal decoration for any garden. Let’s take some and decorate them in an original way. For the project you’ll need paper lanterns, fabric scraps, acrylic paint, Mod Podge, paint brushes, ribbons, lace, or other trimmings. Expand your lantern into a globe and paint it with acrylic paints; don’t press too hard not to tear the tissue of the lantern. Cut you fabric pieces and attach them to the lanterns using Mod Podge and pressing against the pattern.  Now take your ribbons or pompoms and attach them to the lanterns for the wind to have something to play with. If the weather is fine and there’s no rain, enjoy looking at your beautiful lanterns and their dancing with the wind.

    Are you able to fold the lanterns after you’ve done all the changes? I love this idea for my daughters wedding but I’m worried about being able to refold them for transport
