First we use watercolors to paint a plain piece of white paper. When the paper dried we cut several shapes into the paper, and glued tissue paper on the back to show through the shapes.
Next we wrapped the paper around a glass jar and taped the edges together. Finally we put small candles in each lanterns. Note: although we did not have a problem, depending on the candle and jar size, the paper may become hot and possibly ignite, so just be on the lookout!
