Magical Paper Lanterns

Add some colour and cheer with these magical paper lanterns. And the best bit is your little one will have a blast helping you make them!
Here’s what you need to make these tissue paper lanterns!
  • Mod Podge or clear dry glue
  • Mason jars
  • Sponge Brushes
  • Coloured tissue paper
  • Tea light candles
  • Star garland for garnish
Coat the mason jars in mod podge/glue and begin to place your tissue paper. You can cut the tissue shapes ahead of time and for little children paste the jar for them as well. The fun bit is letting them place the shapes!

Remember: the more layered your tissue is, the prettier it glows so don’t make it perfect! Overlap that tissue! I liked to start with a background colour and then place shapes over it.
Don’t forget - mod podge glues on clear so after placing your shape, you can paste down the edges of your shapes, too! I plan on using these around the house or on the porch. They’re so magical!
