Christmas Paper Lantern

Chinese lanterns are a beautiful decoration that can be used in weddings, birthdays or any party or holiday. They can be hung individually, in groupings, in a row and even placed along tables as an eye-catching centerpiece.

They are also easy to convert into gorgeous decor items by simply adding materials commonly found at the craft store. From glitter to paint, or faux berries and a sweet little red cardinal as we have done here to create a whimsical Christmas lantern.
