PAPER Lanterns

We made these gorgeous paper lanterns last week during All Things Paper.
Three layers (let each layer dry over night)  of white tissue brushed onto a balloon with mostly white glue thinned with water. The last layer we added was a glittered white tissue.   
We had 3 ft. dowels (we've used long sticks which I still think is my fav) and wrapped them up with colored tissue strips.

Bakers twine, a needle and some clever stitching secured the lantern to the dowel. 

Beautiful, delicate, glowing orbs.. my summertime favorite.
