DIY: Simple New Year's Party Lanterns!

If you're having trouble coming up with a festive centerpiece or overall NYE party decorations you might want to try this extremely simple lantern tutorial.

All you need is...

• Tape or needle and thread
• Scissors
• Pack of foil doilies ( around $2 a pack, the larger ones work best)

Simply cut out the already made pattern and remove whatever parts you want light shining through. Tape together each 'leaf' or side with a small piece of tape or you can sew the ends if you wish. Add a metal bottom tea light candle and you're done!

I warned you it was simple, now go enjoy your handmade ambiance!
