What's Up Wednesday with Marie Ramirez

Today I am going to show you how to make a glowing paper lantern with tissue paper. Gather all your supplies.

Supplies needed
scissors
mod podge
tissue paper
jar
paint brush
candle

1. Choose your tissue paper colors. You can also add splashes of light weight paper and crepe paper to your lantern.




2.Cut into long strips.




3. Start painting on your mod podge to the outside of the jar. I wouldn't do the entire jar as it dries fast-ish. Work with a designated area.




4. Start laying down your strips of paper where you placed your mod podge. This does not have to be perfect. It is fun to over lap edges.




5. To add a little more texture I cut a heart out of streamers and used both the inside and the outside of it for my lantern. Paint over the paper with the mod podge and adhere your extra bits.




6. Let dry.




7. Pop a tea light in and viola easy paper lantern. The kids would really enjoy this one also!
