Making Chinese Lanterns Tutorial
paper 2 5/8 th x 6 1/8 th inches
Red Bow or paper 2 3/8 th x 6 1/8 th inches
2 1/2 inch large Bow 6 1/2 inches
One inch of 3 inch fringe.
Glue the red ribbon onto the black paper, I utilize a glue stick as I locate that works well.
Roll right into tube and adhesive, utilize paper clips to hold it in position up until it dries out.
Fold gold bow lengthwise and also make cuts in the bow about 1/4 inch apart without reducing to the edge of the bow.
Using paper clips to hold the bow in place add the gold ribbon so a small area of the red paper reveals over it.
Wrap the gold bow around television and staple it together.
Cut 1 inch from a 3 inch red fringe.
Roll the side to you have a tassle. Cut a small piece of gold or red ribbon or paper to twist around the top of the tassle.
Taking a needle punch an opening through the tassle top as well as draw through a 6 1/2 inch gold thread.
With a small opening punch or a needle make two openings on opposite sides of the lantern.
Cut 2 items of red or gold thread 5 1/2 inches long as well as tie them together on top. You might cut one piece of string 10 inches long but I liked the look of the knot.
From the outside thread the red thread with the top of the lantern on both sides. Tie the gold thread to the red string on both sides as well as go down the tassle down the lantern. You could have to change the tassle so it awaits the center.
The finished lanterns look terrific hanging on the branches. I have a big light that I brought back from. With my blue and also white ware (some from some just from sales) the blue dining room looks great.
