Birthday Lanterns

Here's something cheap, easy and fun we did to decorate for my brother's birthday dinner this past week.

Decorate a bunch of small plastic cups with markers. You could let your kids draw pictures or scribble. We wrote out "Happy Birthday, (Name)!" (one letter on each cup)

Cut a small slit in the bottom of each cup. Or, if you want the up and down look like we did, just cut a slit in every other cup.

Slip the cup over each light on a string of white Christmas lights. Use tape on the upright positioned cups if you go for the up and down look.

This would be especially fun if you have an evening, outdoor birthday party!
