Japanese Lanterns

Download Activity Guide
  • Step 1Begin by painting a floral pattern onto your lantern. Use the wooden end of a paint brush to dot the colour on. Use red and pink paint for petals, and yellow for the flower’s centre. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Mix together magenta glitter paint with fairy krystal glitter paint.
  • Step 3Gently paint over the lantern with your glitter paint mix. This will create a pink wash and add a touch of sparkle.
  • Step 4Thread beads onto embroidery thread and tie these to the bottom of the lantern.
  • Step 5Thread gold yarn through the top of the lantern and tie the loose ends into a knot to secure. Paper lanterns make great hanging decorations!
