Butterfly Lanterns

Butterfly Lanterns

Quick Craft Idea!

I am in the final stages of the whirlwind that is planning a 1 year old’s birthday party. I could have done something simple but no… I have gone completely overboard with rainbow cakes, streamers, balloons and a butterfly theme.  I am planning for epic!

luckily I am a planner by nature and cheap and so I started ordering supplies a while ago.  After hours and hours of wandering through Pinterest, I decided that I was going to try to make butterfly lanterns.  This is a quick craft and turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.

All that you need is the following:  

paper lanterns

paper butterflies

a glue gun


Basically all that you have to do it fold the butterflies in half so that they look like they are mid flight and glue them to the lanterns.  That is it! Simple and easy and striking.

I am thinking that this would work with all kinds of paper cut outs but the butterflies worked well because they looked like they were landing on the lanterns.

100 butterflies, 10 lanterns and 3 burned fingers later and voila!

Only about a million more details to sort out before the weekend!
