  • Red paper (8½ x 11 inches)
  • White paper (9 x 7 inches)
  • Tennis ball canister (Check with a local tennis club to see if they can donate any.)
  • Blue tape (1½ inch)
  • Double-sided tape
  • Star-shaped punch or star stickers
  • Tea light (Battery-operated)


  1. Cut the white paper so that it is 9 x 7 inches. Roll the paper and place it inside the tennis canister.
  2. Place a strip of blue tape along both of the 11-inch sides of the red paper. 
  3. Fold the paper in half creating an 11-inch strip. Cut a slit every inch from the folded center to the edge of the tape.
  4. Use the star punch to cut a star in the blue tape about every one inch (or add star stickers).
  5. Add double-sided tape along the back (not taped side) of the red paper. Bring the opposite side around and tape together. 
  6. Slide the lantern over the tennis can. Place a battery-operated tea light inside.
