Decoist DIY: Fairy Light Lanterns

Supply List:

  1. 1/4 cup water
  2. 1/2 cup cornstarch
  3. Large bottle of Elmer’s Clear Glue
  4. Roll of yarn — You can choose whatever color you want! We chose coral color yarn for one lantern, a crisp white yarn for our second lantern, and jute twine rope for our third lantern
  5. Balloon
  6. Fairy string lights — This six-pack is battery-operated, comes in multiple color options, and has a 7ft or 10ft option depending on the size of your lantern and how bright you want it to be! We chose the warm white in the 7ft length.
  7. Large bowl and fork
  8. Pencil

These round lanterns can be hung inside or outside, laid on the ground to illuminate a path, or placed on a bookshelf or fire mantle. For extra protection outside, spray the entire lantern with a clear Rustoleum lacquer spray.
