I love going camping with my kids during the summer but sometimes it is just TOO hot out. This is why my kids love camping indoors, especially when they have fun indoor camping lanterns. Try creating this project with your kids. They’ll love showing it off the next time they have their friends over.
Supplies for Indoor Camping Lanterns
- HP Officejet Pro 8600 AiO Printer + Original HP Ink
- HP Bright White Inkjet Paper
- Tissue Paper
- Clear Plastic Gift Container With Handle
- Foam Brush
- Battery Operated Tea Light
- Bear Silhouette Print outs (Download)
Choose whatever color of tissue paper you want. Take the piece of tissue paper and cut it the height and width of the container.
Paint a small amount of decoupage on the clear plastic container and attach the tissue paper. Do a small area at a time, eventually working around the entire container. Let dry.
TIP #1: Smooth out the tissue paper on to the container as you go.
Once completely dry, paint a layer of decoupage on top of the tissue paper. Allow to completely dry.
Download the bear silhouettes I’ve provided, print and cut out.
TIP #2: You can also create your own silhouettes to paste to the lantern.
Paint the back of the bear silhouette with a thin coat of decoupage and be sure to get all edges covered. Once painted, place the silhouette on one side of the lantern. Allow to dry then give the top of the silhouette a coat of decoupage.
Once dry, place a battery operated tea light inside and you are ready to camp!
The best part though, is that you can use this outdoors as well!
