THINGS YOU WILL NEED

Above: Dying process of my paper lanterns from Daiso. You can skip this step if you do not need a blue or coloured paper lantern. Or if you managed to find off the rack coloured paper lanterns. As my party theme is green and blue, I bought a bottle of food dye from NTUC and spray it onto my paper lanterns. I did a good spray and dry for 3 times before the colour finally sets in properly. This took me about 2 hours on a good sunny afternoon.
actually it's pretty simple. spray. let it out to dry. check again and spray. dry. spray. dry. And you will have your coloured lanterns in no time at all. They dry pretty quick as the paper are quite thin.
here's the things that you will need.
Step 2: tie the baker's twine from the top of the paper lantern to the bottom. I used a satay stick to poke a hole and thread through my bakers' twine at the bottom.
Step 3: I double side taped my cup to the saucer and scotch taped my thread to the underside of the saucer.
