We've had quite a few of paper lanterns around lately and I've been experimenting. First up, some color blocked lanterns! Super simple, done in no time, lanterns. You'll need a lantern, a sponge brush (they tend to cover more evenly), some paint and some string - in my case, lace.
I love the simplicity and the pop of color they add to the party decor. Next time I might try some polka dots!
