This DIY Firecracker Lantern is a great and easy craft that will make your Chinese New Year shine bright! CNY is on the 28th this year and it will be the year of the Rooster!
You will need:
- Red Cellophane
- You can grab these for around $1 at any Asian grocery store.
- LED Candle
- This one was only $1 at Dollar Tree. Grab the one that has the translucent fabric.
- Glue gun and/or regular glue
- Gold Glitter
- Red Ribbon
Cut a piece of cellophane to cover your candle. Wrap it around the candle and glue it on.
To make a handle, glue your ribbon to each side of the candle.
Add a strip of glue to the top and bottom of your candle and cover it with the gold glitter.
That’s it! You’re done! It’s time to celebrate Chinese New Year!
