It’s the details in parties that make them so fun. Especially when creating those details is so darn easy. If you’ve got a tween in your life, you’ve probably seen the ever-trendy Emoji in your household. They are pretty cute, and turns out, make an excellent party theme as we saw at my daughter’s Emoji birthday party. For every party, there needs to be some themed decor, so for our super easy stellar party detail, we made bunches of Emoji lanterns from plain yellow paper lanterns. The lanterns we bought in bulk from Amazon.com, and printed off a few sheets of facial expressions (link below!) to bring these cuties to life!
Are you ready to do this?? Great! Be prepared for some Emoji awesomeness!
Emoji Party Lantern Materials:
- 10″ yellow paper lanterns (buy them here)
- Free emoji face printables (download designs for 5 emoji faces here)
- Elmer’s X-TREME School Glue Stick™
- X-acto knife
- Elmer’s red Glitter Glue (optional)
Step 1. Print out the free printable emoji faces and cut out the emoji facial pieces with scissors or an Xacto knife. You’ve got a choice of five faces to make, and really, you can put the expressions on there however you’d like!
Step 2. You can use Elmer’s Red glitter glue to put a little extra sparkle on the emoji faces if you like, but this step is optional.
Step 3. Use an Elmer’s X-TREME School Glue Stick™ to attach facial pieces to yellow paper lantern. A hot glue gun will also work.
From there, all you’ll have to do is hang them up or figure out where to display them! We hung a few Emoji lanterns up from strings around our party, but we also set quite a few up on shelves or on table tops for some super happy decorations.
