Paper decor.

I decided to decorate a window with some Paper Lanterns for Halloween and to add a bit of color and light as it becomes darker and more grey out. It has added a lot to the room.
I found the directions to make these origami lanterns here. (they are also known as water bombs)
It turned out to be quite easy. Just a bit time-consuming to make a number of the lanterns. I found the vellum paper kind of tricky to work with but the mulberry paper worked quite nicely.
I will probably make some different colored ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
