Make Your Own Lulav and Etrog Paper Lanterns

Every year I want to add a lighting element to the sukkah, and every year I sort of bail out on something fancy. Last year we hung up some netted Christmas lights, which were pretty, but not really what I’d had in mind.

This year I scored some really gorgeous fairy lights with greenery attached. I found them at Marshall’s, but here are some similar ones I found online in case you’re interested. So that’s a big boost in ambiance. I still wanted something for the table though, so I created these little paper lanterns using the same lulav and etrog clip art as I used for the disposable dishes from last week’s post. Aren’t they just adorable? I love the extra lighting for our dinners.

Once again, I do own a Cricut, so I know that there’s a lot of cutting involved with my Sukkot projects this year. If you have a Cricut as well, click here to go to the project page.

If not, have no fear. I wouldn’t leave you in the dust like that! Click here for a Free Lulav and Etrog Paper Lantern Template. Directions are included on the printable, but I’ll include them below just in case.
