Pressed Flower Paper Lanterns
From the blogger: "Make these gorgeous paper mache lanterns as a great budget-friendly DIY for parties and weddings. Made with pressed flowers and wax paper these hanging lanterns will look amazing hanging amongst the trees in your garden. This is a very popular project on my blog. Glue dried pressed flowers in between sheets of transparent paper. If you don’t want to go through the process of pressing your own flowers or you want to make this craft without waiting for flowers to dry out, you can always buy some ready pressed flowers. Make handles from some wire. Tie some jute twine to the rings and make the handle as long as you need it to be. In my case, I wanted to hang these in the trees so I made my ties quite long. So, there you have it! Another beautiful and easy DIY. All that’s left to do is to place a candle into your lantern, hang it up and enjoy your beautiful Autumn evenings under the harvest moon!"
