The Lunar New Year is just a couple of weeks away. Last week, we shared with you our paper plate hand fans. If you enjoyed those, you might want to try this simple idea as well. If you have an old cardboard tube and some paint kicking around, you can make one today to welcome in the Year of the Rooster.

Cut an old paper towel tube into thirds or use a single toilet paper tube. Paint the inside of the tube and the outside in the color or colors of your choice and let dry. Paint or use markers to make a design for your lantern. We used Sharpies to draw simple branches with flowers. Let the paint and/or markers dry completely before going to the next step.
