The Chinese New Year is a fun time to make handmade party supplies. Create bold colorful paper lanterns with bright stock paper, a stapler, paper hole puncher and thin wire. Fold paper lengthwise. Cut slits every inch. Leave an inch at the open end uncut. Open the paper. Form a cylinder widthwise with the center still slightly bent. Staple the top and bottom of the paper. Punch two holes in the top of each lantern and hang with the wire. Keep lanterns plain or add bright colorful designs to them.
For fun homemade party favors, purchase small Chinese takeout boxes. Paint the boxes red. When the boxes are fully dry, decorate with a gold marker. Write guests names on the top of the boxes. Fill each box with Chinese fortune cookies.
Chinese New Year dragons are a must and can easily be handmade. Create a template by downloading a basic dragon and enlarging it. Once you have your template, trace it on white poster board. Use permanent markers or paint to color the dragon. Be sure to color both sides of the dragon. Use bright colors and vary your designs. Hang the dragons from the ceiling.
Make handmade napkins to use at your Chinese New Year celebration. Purchase red cloth or paper napkins, gold fabric paint and a rubber stamp with a Chinese theme. If you purchase cloth ones, you can use them over and over. Using the gold paint, stamp a design on the bottom center of each folded napkin.
Other homemade Chinese New Year party ideas are a red and gold piņata, Asian coasters, red and gold garland and handmade candle holders.
