Introduction

This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman of Hello Holy Days. "Adding ribbon to honeycomb decorations helps them look like lanterns," she says. Pictured here, the lanterns are differently shaped for added dimension.

  2. Encircle ribbon around the circumference of the lantern, cut with scissors, and secure with hot glue. The shape of the lantern will make the ribbon stay in place, so you don’t need to glue the entire length of ribbon to the paper.
  3. Hang to display lanterns.
