Did you know that you can make a unique lantern out of cupcake liners ? You doubt it ?
Follow the instructions and you’ll see that you can make it happen ;)
- 100–125 white standard-sized paper cupcake liners
- 100–125 vertically striped petit fours papers
- One 18–20″ white paper lantern
- hot glue gun
- 1 Hemma Cord from IKEA (for lighting)
Assemble the lantern and place it top up in a wide, use the bowl as a base.
Put a small dot of hot glue on the backside of a white cupcake liner. Starting about 1/2″ in from the wire ring at the top of the lantern, place and attach the cupcake liner on the lantern
Continue around the ring, spacing the papers so that the circular bases are approximately 1″ apart, allowing the outer edges to merge and shape.
Apply the cupcake papers around the lantern in rings until you are 3/4 of the way down, and then flip the lantern top side down.
Complete the underside, and fill in the bottom so that the papers cover the base opening.
Begin applying the petit fours papers, centering them inside each white paper. Three-quarters of the way up the lantern, flip it top side up. Complete the top side.
Go back through, gently manipulating the outer papers to the desired shape. I kept mine fairly organic.
Now turn the light on and enjoy the beauty of this lantern.
