Celebrate Independence Day in style with these star-spangled paper lanterns. These lanterns are easy and fun to make with just tissue paper and home-made edible decoupage. They’ll provide a festive decoration for a patio that will keep the party going long after the sun sets and the fireworks are gone.
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Pure Cane Sugar
- 1 teaspoon oil (grapeseed, olive, etc.)
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Red and blue tissue paper
- White paper lantern (can be found at dollar store or hobby shop)
- Mix flour, sugar, water and oil in a pot and stir over low heat until well combined and smooth in texture to make decoupage.
- Cut stars (we prepared several different sizes) out of blue and red tissue paper. You can cut them free-hand or use a stencil.
- Paint a very thin layer of decoupage on the lantern about the size of the star. Be careful not to paint it on too thick or to use too much pressure or the paper lantern may rip.
- Adhere star to lantern then paint over the star with a thin layer of decoupage.
- Hang to dry.
