Paper lanterns are simple to make and brighten up the backyard for any occasion. I used a Sharpie to create the pictured design on a legal size sheet of paper. The beauty of this was that I was able to make copies onto card stock so that I wound up with a whole string of lanterns and only had to make one design. I've made these many times with children using construction paper and crayons. I encourage them to decorate both sides of the paper so that they are especially colorful. Virtually any type of paper can be used and it is not necessary to start with your own design.
