Light up the night and get a big bang for your decorating buck by using Fourth of July paper lanterns. Get creative and paint cool patterns onto the lanterns yourself! If you don’t have an overhead structure, you can run clear fishing line between two secure points, and hang the lanterns from the string. You can also cluster the lanterns under an umbrella or on a porch column.
