Diwali means light a new beginning and victory thus in every house you may find some trendy lighting and decorative lanterns.
I wanted to try something traditional, Eco-friendly and arty so here it is traditional Lantern Making.
Card Paper sheet-white, stapler,fevicol,gelatin paper,kite paper-color of your choice,golden paper.scissor, scale, pencil.
With the help of scale and pencil draw lines of 2 cm each.Cut these two strips . now form a circle from each strip like shown in the picture below. Thus the base and head of the lantern is ready.
Attach these four strips to the 2 rings in the form of pillars. this makes the inner structure of the lantern. like the picture below.
line this base structure with red gelatin paper to pass the bulb light easily.To make a colorful outer structure cut the kite paper in square size of 9 cm each.
Now paste any two ends of the square sheet together. Allow to dry and then stick the plain side of the sheet to the lantern . like the picture below.
I have used different color papers to form a alternate color pattern.
The golden color paper makes the lantern look more attractive. Also use small square size of golden paper on the closed end of the folded paper.
Illuminate it with light bulb connection.
