Camp Doll Diaries - Patriotic Paper Lanterns

Jen from American Girl Doll Play is our guest this week and she has an easy way for you to dress up your July 4th doll displays!

Make a paper lantern for dolls

Making paper lanterns are pretty easy!  All you need is construction paper, scissors and some glue.
 
You can cut your strips of paper to whatever size you would like them to be and use whatever colors you like by just switching out the papers for different ones.  I used Glue Dots for my attaching the handle and putting together the lantern but you could use a glue stick or Elmer’s Glue too.  
 
 
Today we decorated the outdoors for our upcoming holiday picnic but we are also going to use these lanterns for inside as well.  We will be hanging them in the doll area using string.
 
 
We hope that this project has you inspired for some fun Fourth of July crafting!
 
Thanks Jen for joining in on all the fun!
