Autumn Kids Crafts - making wreaths and lanterns

how to make paper lanterns

In my latest box of goodies from Bostik and Tots100, I received a beautiful bundle of autumn colours and just knew those popsicle sticks needed turning into paper lanterns and the leaves would look great on an autumn wreath.

After the fun we had creating our Halloween wreaths I was rather looking forward to creating another one (may have a slight addiction, so expect Christmas ones on this blog soon.....)
