Nikki's Niche- Chevron Bag Lanterns {Found!}

YAY! I found it! I found my Chevron Bag tutorial. So glad I'm not completely crazy and it really did turn out cute!

I had a number of goodie bags to play with and I wanted to do something a little different.

I started by cutting a {small} slit down the mid-center of each bag.

I then placed a white light into each hole cut in the bags.

It looked too plain so I used a plate to trace and then cut each bag into a semi-circle.

We then used 20 gauge wire folded and put down the center of the bag slit and through the lights- this was to hold the bags open

Here they are all strung up - with the wire just barely visible...

You can slightly see how they stay open- with help from the wire.

Cute for the day OR night!


  1. OK- now this is really really cute!!!! Great idea!
