You won’t believe how much these cost if you were to buy one. Here’s one on YLighting for $841!!
Here are the basic instructions that you will need to start, then from there you can add your own variations.
Supplies you’ll need:
- White paper lanterns
- Cotton batting
- LED lights – battery powered
- Hot glue gun
- Fishing line to hang your lantern if it doesn’t come with string
Step 1: Pull the batting apart until you get it nice and fluffy. It comes compressed in the bag so get it pulled apart first
Step 2: Using the hot glue gun, put glue in spots on the lantern to stick your cotton batting to. You may find it easier to put a strip of glue down one of the folds, but be sure you stick the batting on quickly before the glue gets hard. This process needs to happen quickly.
Step 3: Press the cotton to the glue for a few seconds until you’re sure the glue is dry. Then you can fluff you cotton out a little more to get the effect you want.
Step 4: Keep adding glue and cotton until you’ve covered the lantern and it looks the way you want.
