Let's make something pretty with a cheap paper lantern.

You'll need: one paper lantern, spray paint, feathers, hot glue gun, dream catcher, yarn or old necklace, string lights, and hook for the ceiling. optional: white extension cord and extra hook.

Step 1: Paint

Unless your lantern is already the color you want, spray paint it a color that will blend well with the feathers. I went with metallic gold. Keep in mind that the lantern will still cast a glow the color of the original paper when the lights are turned on.
