A last minute crafting treat for Christmas! The guests are almost at the door, but still no table decoration is available? These beautiful deco lanterns are made in a jiffy…


+ Star punch (found at all major craft stores)
+ Bread paper bag
+ Tea light

Step 1

First, the bread bag is exactly folded in half.

Step 2

Then the stars are punched through with the motif punch. So that the stars are distributed in a circle, position the lower and upper star closer to the fold…

Step 3

… And then position the third star further on the edge.

Step 4

Then the bag is unfolded again. Oh my stars!

Step 5

Finally, the bottom must be formed so that the tea light can stand in the bread bag. Fold the bag in both directions once.

Already the lantern is ready. Now it only has to be arranged on the Christmas table, it looks also when the lantern was sprayed with gold paint.
