We love to bring you guys super simple DIY projects to brighten up your space! This papercut Folk Floral Lantern hits all the marks as it is both lovely and incredibly easy to make. With a list of only four needed materials and just a few tools, we think this project is a sweet addition to our vast paper lantern collection.
These papercut folk floral lanterns are about as beginner-friendly as it gets! We highly recommend a cutting machine so you can be as precise as possible, but if you prefer a more handmade look, then you can also print out the PDF template to cut out by hand using a cutting knife.

Heart of Folk
This folksy floral lantern is perfect for fall decorating! Create a fun, unique table centerpiece, or scatter them throughout your home for some visual interest this fall season. These lanterns would also look especially pretty lit up on your front porch — the possibilities are endless! We used a shimmery antique gold paper paired with vellum to create our lanterns, but this look would work just as well with copper paper or maybe black for a gothic spin.
As mentioned, this craft is the very definition of simple. When you’re ready to begin, simply cut out the pattern, fold, glue, and go! That’s it. Just add an LED tea light, and these babies are ready to dazzle.
