DIY Paper Lanterns
Stunning, but simple! String up this project in a backyard and light up the night.
Blogger Susan Petersen with “Freshly Picked” shows how to fold your way to your own impressive DIY lighting.
Start with a square piece of paper (I used 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches)
Fold diagonal again.
Fold in half horizontally,
fold in half vertically.
Grab the center of your folds,
creating a triangular piece.
Fold each of the triangle corners to the top.
Now you should have a square.
Fold the corners in.
Tuck the top pieces into the pockets.
See the hole on the bottom?
Blow into that + create your lantern.
Place over the light.
