I always liked Japanese lanterns, made of rice paper and decorated with calligraphy. I made a simple but spectacular version of them.
First, choose the pattern you want to have on the lantern. It can be one big or several smaller pieces. If you are not sure about freehand drawing, print the patterns in the right size and use them as templates.
Place the templates under the transparent paper and copy it with a black felt pen. Fold the paper, put a light source (candle, led light) inside and it’s done! Perfect accessory for a Japanese themed evening.
