Here is another lantern option beside the paper lantern variety I have been making. We made these today with glass jars, tissue paper and glue. They are a lovely colourful, very simple lantern to make, especially simple for children. The tissue paper can be cut or torn and then applied with glue to the bottle. I used sobo craft glue. I wanted to make patterns on the lanterns so I cut the paper in circles, strips and squares to create three different looking lanterns. I also made a little one that has hand drawn toadstools on it. Once the jars were completely covered in tissue paper I turned them upside down to dry on the heater. Tomorrow I will attach the wire around rims of the jars so that they can be hung of sticks to be carried in Sunday’s Lantern Walk.
