Woven Paper Lantern

Decorate your next party with this easy variation on the favorite Paper Lantern. Even the littlest crafters can help.


Crepe streamers or coloured strips of paper


Fold a piece of paper in half along the longest side. Then cut into strips from the folded side, being careful not to cut all the way to the other edge of the paper.

Open it out and start to weave the streamers into the paper.

Continue until no more streamers will fit. Then trim the ends and tape them to the paper.

Join short ends to form a lantern, and stick on an extra piece of paper to make a handle.
