Chinese Banner

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Each year the streets of China are decked with long, lacy garlands in honor of the New Year. Celebrate in your home with this version of the popular decorations.


  • Colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue


Chinese Banner - Step 1

Cut at least a dozen or more large circles from colored paper.

Chinese Banner - Step 2

Fold each circle in half, then in half again, and finally in half a third time (it will resemble a wedge of pizza). Perforate each wedge by making a series of snips from both sides toward the center.

Chinese Banner - Step 3

Unfold the snipped circles. Apply a few drops of glue along the edge of one open circle. Place a second circle on top of the first, so that the edges stick together. Next, apply glue to the center of the second circle and place a third circle on top of it. Continue adding the remaining circles, alternately gluing the edges and the centers.

Chinese Banner - Step 4

When the glue is dry, gently pull the top and bottom circle in opposite directions and hang the garland.
