Has anyone tried to make these?  DH wanted me to find instructions because he wants to make a few with the kids.  I can find kits to do it, but nothing that is 100% DIY, which is what he wants.

I have never made these before. But I have seen these crafts on TV. I am interested in that kind of things. May be you can search the instructions on how to make these crafts online. You may  use some beads to decorate the lanterns. Hope to see your beautiful crafts!

I found two sources of instruction for you. http://www.essortment.com/make-own-homemade-floating-paper-lanterns-51591.html and http://www.ehow.com/how_4779300_floating-paper-lanterns.html  Both appear to be all DIY except for making the paper! I'd love to see your results, too!
