Paper Bag Lanterns: Spruce Up Your Backyard

These paper bag lanterns from BBB (as seen on Design*Sponge) have inspired me to do something similar for my summer yard. Especially after we spent most of this weekend mowing and trimming and weeding and now our yard is finally ready for some pretty touches.

Paper lanterns are perfect for summer barbecues, lounging outside with a good book or just enjoying your outdoor space now that the weather actually allows you to step outside without 15 separate layers on.

At Design*Sponge, the needed supplies are listed and include everyday crafter materials like stencils, wire, cardboard, etc. (and finally a perfect reason to buy an x-acto knife!).

I had every intention of putting these together this past weekend to share a first-hand version with you, but life annoyingly got in the way. I do promise to make these soon and report back. If only I could invite all of you to the summer party I plan to hang these at!

Do you like these paper lanterns?
