Dip the balloon several times making sure to flatten the bottom on the counter in-between dips.
We then painted the leaves with melted beeswax using a stick to put them on our lanterns. Then we dipped the lanterns two more times.
For mother's day C and I also made our mothers and grandmothers these lanterns. I found the idea on this website:
It was a great tutorial and the only thing we changed was how to get the leaves on without using a glue gun or having the leaves stick together. We ended up using a stick to paint the leaves with melted beeswax to get them to stick. It worked pretty well.
Thanks Rae for posting such a great tutorial we had a great time making these and our mothers loved them. :)
