Autumn Lanterns {Light & Reflections Series}

Oh, we love autumn! All these colorful leaves, treasure hunts, even autumn rain. And autumn crafts of course! :)

This month's Light & Reflections Series theme is Fall. We've made simple autumn lanterns using the first autumn leaves we collected. 

We used laminator but if you don't have one you can use thick tracing paper or reuse old transparent file folders to stick the leaves on.

You need:
- leaves (dry and press them between the books for a day)
- tissue paper leaves shapes
- laminating pouches (squares or A4 size) or tracing paper if you use it instead
- laminator

Mr Frog cut out some tissue paper shapes inside and arranged them with leaves in the laminating pouches and we laminated them. 

Then simple connect the squares together using a sellotape to make a box-like shape or a cylinder for A4 size. Put some led lights inside. Simple as 1-2-3 :)  
It gives really nice light and the dried leaves looks beautiful. Perfect to lighten up long autumn evenings :)
