This tutorial from Crafty nest is a really easy, cheap way to spruce up paper lanterns. Paper lanterns have been everywhere for a couple of years, but the ones that look like this usually cost a heck of a lot more than I’m willing to spend on them. I like the flower one for our entryway. It’s pretty dark and the only decor we have up so far (a round IKEA mirror, three Anthropologie hooks, and a wooden IKEA bench) would go well with a cream colored lantern. (There’s also the plan to put up pictures on one of the walls, but knowing us, that won’t be for awhile)
