  • Step 1Print out the template provided. We suggest printing onto cardboard as this will provide a great surface for decorating and a strong base for construction.
  • Step 2Decorate your lantern. We have used watercolours and a black permanent marker. Allow to dry and then use scissors or a craft knife to cut it out. Don’t forget to cut out the inner windows of the lantern too!
  • Step 3Cut pieces of coloured tissue paper to fit in the windows and tape into place.
  • Step 4Fold along the lines of the template to prepare for construction. As you fold, hold the tabs in place using sticky tape. Continue until your lantern is fully formed and standing strong.
  • Step 5Take a chenille stem and create a handle for the lantern. Thread the ends through the holes in the top tabs and twist to secure. Your lantern is now ready to hold a Battery LED Tealight Candle!
  • DO NOT use a naked flame inside this lantern. Use battery operated lights only and never leave unattended.
