Doile lanterns. Pretty hanging in the trees for outdoor wedding. Romantic twist on paper lanterns.
My kids NEED these!! So in love with how they look! First, you need some cotton batting, a paper lantern, and three flameless candles, the type that Glade sells. Pull at the cotton batting until it looks fluffy, light, and cloud-like. Then, hot glue it to the outside of the paper lantern in various places. Make sure it's fluffed to your liking, then light the lights and stick them inside. Hang the lantern wherever you'd like.
Nest light lanterns...Using Battery operated lights ....Great for ANY Evening Event clustered on a table, or in any room as lighting. Great idea for Patio, an evening wedding ... use them for table or room decorations / for flower girls, bridesmaids to carry as an alternative to bouquets.
Caterpillar: Trim a few sheets of colorful double-sided cardstock into strips. Staple or glue the edges together as you help your kids form the chain. Accent the caterpillar with cute pom-pom feet, googly eyes, and a heart-shape felt-sticker mouth. Finish this cute little guy by punching two small holes in the head and threading a short chenille stem through each to create curly antennae.
