Instructions for Making A Cloud Light:
Supplies You Will Need:
6 Paper Lanterns (but you can choose to use less or more lanterns)
Batting (which is stuffing you can buy from a craft supply or fabric store)
2 Cup Hooks (to hang from ceiling)
Take your glue gun and glue batting onto the paper lanterns. Each lantern will make one of your clouds.
Cut fishing line to the length you would like to hand from the ceiling. You will need to cut two pieces, one for each side of the dowel. Tie fishing line to both ends of your dowel. You may want to measure the length of both after you have tied them to make sure the measurements are the same. Trim them to match, if necessary.
You will need to cut more pieces of fishing line to hang the lanterns and string lights. Cut one piece for each lantern and attach to the dowel.
Tie the hanging ends of your line to the tops of your lanterns to hang your DIY clouds one by one. Your cool room decor is almost done!
Hang each lantern so that your clouds look something like this.
Hang your string lights and plug them in. (You can connect all the strings together so you only have to plug one of them into the wall)
