I'm having a lantern making week! Today we made these beautiful Waldorf Star Lanterns, which are my new favourite winter craft. They are incredibly beautiful, and once you get the hang of the folding, pretty simple to make. My one main tip would be to be make sure all the folds are pressed firmly down at the beginning as it makes the process a lot easier. I used 160g watercolour paper, which the children painted in different colours.
I found two tutorials which I found here and here, which both have brilliant step by step instructions.
