    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    Blow up a balloon to the size you want your lantern to be.
    Guide step %d
    Mix the papier-mâché powder in water in the ratio: 3 parts powder to 1 part water.
    Guide step %d
    Mix and knead until the mixture resembles the papier-mâché pulp in this photo.
    Guide step %d
    Cover halfway round the balloon with the papier-mâché pulp. Make a rustic surface by adding another layer of small pieces of papier-mâché pulp, scratching the surface lightly to add texture with your fingertips or a teaspoon. Make sure that the papier-mâché pulp is still wet when doing so.
    Guide step %d
    Remove the balloon when the papier-mâché is dry.
    Guide step %d
    Decorate the inside of the lantern by brushing a thin layer of decoupage lacquer where you wish to attach a flower. Attach the flower on top of the decoupage lacquer.
    Guide step %d
    Secure the flower by brushing another thin coat of decoupage lacquer on top.
    Guide step %d
    Varnish the entire inside of the lantern with a thin coat of decoupage lacquer when you have finished decorating.
    Guide step %d
    Do not use live candles. Use battery-powered LED tea-lights instead.
