Worksheet and Video, 21 December 2021

This FREE workshop from 'Let's Make Art' is for all the family to enjoy together!

This Christmas Let’s Make Art have provided a sustainable activity for all the family using recycled gift wrap and other colourful papers discarded at Christmas. The video shows how to make an easy paper lantern to decorate and illuminate.

An Akash Kandil is a lantern, usually made with a wooden framework and covered in coloured papers. They are hung in front of homes during Diwali; the Hindu Festival of Lights. We thought they would make nice Christmas decorations too and put good use to all the beautiful wrapping paper usually discarded.

Materials list:

  • Collected gift wrap or other papers - choose the sturdiest paper for the construction of the lantern.
  • Recycled ribbon, trim, tinsel or bows
  • Double sided tape or glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Recycled lid (ideally from an ice cream tub)
  • LED tealight
The workshop is being delivered as worksheet with accompanying video to your email inbox on 21st December 2021.
