CHINESE NEW YEAR
2021 IS THE YEAR OF THE OX
– Paul Theroux
This Chinese New Year kids craft requires a cardboard tube, yellow paint, gold ribbon, and red cardstock paper.
PAINT CARDBOARD TUBE
You'll need to do this first in order to let it fully dry. It might take a few coats.
CUT LONG STRIP
Cut one long strip of red cardstock that will be used as the handle for your Chinese lantern.
Wrap the cardstock around the cardboard tube so that the paper puckers out.
ATTACH GOLD RIBBON
Carefully wrap and blue the gold ribbon at the top of the paper lantern.
Use the long strip of cardstock to create a handle for your Chinese paper lantern.
