EZ Chinese Wishing Tree
6-8 Gold Branches
15 Chinese New Year Red Envelopes
15 written wishes for New Year
Red or Chinese style vase
Stuff and seal each envelope with
a wish. Poke holes through the corners
of each envelope, attach Christmas
tree ornament wire holders (these things
are miracle workers), to each envelope and hang.
At Chinese New Year, burn the envelopes.
3 large cardboard boxes, (For dragon,
Chinese disks and pagoda)
black, red, pink, yellow, turquoise paints
& brushes, gold glitter, 1 sheet of stiff
paper, 3 wooden dowels, 3 milk jugs, red
ribbon, hot glue, bag of concrete. Cut down
creases on one side of boxes to extend them to their
fullest length. Pencil on your design.
Cut out the cardboard designs. Paint, glitter.
For Chinese Red Disks:
Paint dowels black; hot glue round painted disks to dowels.
Cut out small round circles for Chinese Coins,
paint gold. Draw small black squares inside of
gold circles. Glue to red ribbon and glue to back of
your large round disks so that they hang. Next, cut out
a hole on the side of your milk jugs, (see picture),
fill with enough concrete to make a nice sturdy stand,
I did about 4", mix in some water, (not too soupy or will
take longer to dry). Stick your dowel down in the opening
at the top of your jugs. Let dry. Afterward, cut away the
top half of the milk jug, leaving just enough to enclose the
concrete pad. These attractive signs can be used on your
front porch or inside your home.
