DIY FOURTH OF JULY LANTERNS

For the Fourth of July, Miss Caroline and I did some fun crafts and made some fun treats. She is absolutely in LOVE with the movie Tangled, so we made some floating lanterns.


All we did was take some tissue paper and use watered down Elmer's glue to attach it to the cans and jars. The cans and jars came from the recycle bin!

Aren't they beautiful? I made the two on the left, and Miss Caroline made the ones on the right. She likes the red, white and blue stripes.


 Then I poked some holes in the top of the cans and laced a wire through it to hang it. We added some tinsel In the cans to make them "extra special sparkly."


Pretty easy huh? And the best part... this project was totally free! They are now hanging on our front porch! And they were a lovely, simple addition to our fourth of July.
