Lantern Crafts are one of the prettiest types of craft around if you ask me. From mason jars to paper lanterns, I’ve collected a few of my favourites here. 

Any of these would work really well as a Ramadan craft activity for kids, some are perfect for Chinese New Year, and others will be ideal for decorating the garden during Summer.
