Chinese New Year lanterns

On Friday 16th February we celebrated Chinese New Year. Its a big year for us as my son and I are both Dogs and this is the year of the Dog.

The end of the celebrations are marked by the Lantern Festival


Find some red and gold thin card or thick paper. Fold it in half length ways. Snip along, stopping before the edge.

You could always decorate red paper with a gold marker pen or stickers.


Unfold the card then wrap around and secure with double sided sticky tape.


We wanted to hang ours so we cut out some thin strips of black paper and looped them for handles then threaded through so black ribbon.
