You can use something round, like a serving bowl, to ensure a perfect circular shape. Then, use some twine to attach the two beach balls into the tree next to each other. Image and idea courtesy of The Princess & The Frog.

Cut 10″ squares from the fabric, fold each one into a triangle and cut off the tip of the triangle. Then remove the lanters from each light and thread the light through the hole in the fabric. Put the lantern back on the light and wrap the fabric around the lantern, securring the bottom with a piece of string. Draw on eyes and a mouth. Repeat this for all lanters.
