There are certain craft projects that are perfect for summertime. And this is one of them! There’s still one month of summer left, which means there’s plenty of time to gather your friends and family together for at least one more party at your place. If you want to plan a beachy, island-inspired party with tropical vibes, these paper tiki lanterns are perfect party decor!
While planning a party can sometimes feel like a lot of work, this DIY project is super easy to make. You can make these paper tiki lanterns using our text weight paper and two simple tools. Once you’ve gathered what you need for this project, scroll down to download the SVG file (if you’re using a cutting machine) or PDF file (if you’re using a printer and cutting with scissors). Then, follow Lia’s simple photo tutorial on liagriffith.com to learn how to make your own tiki lanterns—and find some more inspiration to help you create a tropical party your guests will never forget!
When you’re done making your paper tiki lanterns, you can use them to create a festive centerpiece for your food table by setting your lanterns in the middle of a paper wreath and adding some LED lights. This is also a simple way to create a relaxed, yet inviting atmosphere—and keep your party going once it gets dark! Have you used any of our paper products to create something fun this summer?
