Summer vacation = finally time to finish all those crafts for the classroom I don't have time for!
So I found the cutest owl paper lantern on Pinterest the other day:
...and I thought "Oooo, I could create some of those for the classroom!" I scrumaged [is that a word?] through my basement and found some paper lanterns that were a wedding gift [4 years ago] that we'd never used. I thought I'd hang them from our outside 'patio thing' but figured they'd get damaged by the weather. So they've been in a box ever since!
My lanterns aren't round... but I think it'll work anyways... here's an example for the first one I tried! I painted it pink, I also painted some shades of brown and green [to match the material I'm putting in the classroom next year] so I'll post pictures of those ones once they're done.
Here's how it turned out!
I changed the eyes a bit... and I'm going to create a 'brow' on some of the others too... but I also need to hotglue on each part since they'll be hanging in the classroom and that will help them to be more durable [hopefully]!
Really easy!! I hope you can try them out too!
