You can easily add some whimsy to your indoor and/or outdoor space with these hanging moss orb lanterns. I hit the jackpot when I found this moss ribbon at a craft store for 90% off. I've had several different projects in the works using this ribbon, but this has to be my favorite.

Grab some of this moss ribbon from your local craft store.

Decide how big you want your lanterns to be and cut the ribbon to length. I cut the ribbon in half because I wanted thinner lines. I used two of these pieces for each orb.

Use your hot glue gun to glue the ends of the ribbon together, creating a hoop.

Create a second hoop and glue around the first.
