Paper lanterns are so festive and fun for a summertime party, and you can easily make them on your own! It only takes a few basic supplies, and with all of the pretty paper choices in stores like JoAnn’s, Michaels and Hobby Lobby, the design options are endless. Best of all, since they’re small, you can make them into a garland!
