Make a Rainbow Bright Paper Lantern

rainbow lantern 2

I just love decorating paper lanterns. You may remember my dotted tissue paper lantern and my letter lighting project! I think they are an easy way to add major impact Maybe this lantern leads to a pot o’ gold since it is St. Paddy’s day and all )totally unplanned btw).

The cool thing is that you can make this for under $5 bucks in under an hour! Here’s how!

Rainbow Bright Paper Lantern


– Paper lantern in size of your choice…some are available at craft stores for $1!
– Tissue paper squares in rainbow of colors (got mine at Michaels)
– Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue®


OK, I’m not going to list them out, cause this is one of the simplest crafts you can make…

First you take these squares…

…you glue them in color order to the lantern starting at top. Slightly overlap them as you glue going down the lantern.


Glue any remaining pieces in place and fill in any gaps.

And there you have it!

It’s the perfect accent for brightening up any room that needs a splash of color.

Until next time Swellions!


P.S. I added it to the following linky parties!
