Celebrate Spring Festival with DIY Decor: Create Lanterns & More with HPRT A4 Printers and Label Makers
As the lunar month of La heralds the year's end, the Spring Festival's festive spirit fills the streets with bustling markets and lively decorations, a testament to the enduring joy and traditions of the Chinese people. With Spring Festival nearing, it's the perfect time to adorn our homes with warmth and cheer.
Facing the challenge of rising holiday prices, there's a creative and cost-effective way to enliven our spaces using what we already have at home. It's particularly engaging for families with children to involve them in crafting homemade decorations, blending the joy of creation with the richness of traditional culture. Utilizing HPRT A4 printers and label makers, we can easily transform everyday materials into charming festive adornments, adding a personal touch to our holiday celebrations.
Full of Atmosphere - Lanterns
In China, the Spring Festival is the most important celebration of the year, with every household hanging red lanterns to mark the arrival of the new year. This tradition symbolizes not just reunion and joy, but also the hope for a prosperous and united year ahead.
Materials Needed: 4 sheets of A4 paper (red with gold speckles for a better effect), craft sticks (or disposable chopsticks), double-sided tape, red string, scissors, spare Chinese knots, and light strings from home.
First, print the desired patterns or blessings using the HPRT A4 printer GT1 on the A4 papers. Remember, the red papers with gold speckles look even better!
You can use hot glue or connectors to assemble the sticks into a lantern frame.
Then, align the printed A4 papers against the lantern frame, marking the center of the patterns or blessings with a pencil. Trim off one side from each corner of the paper with scissors.
Stick the trimmed A4 papers onto the lantern frame using double-sided tape. Quickly, you'll have all four sides of the lantern completed.
Finally, secure the lantern diagonally with the string, wrapping around the handle sticks. The bottom of the lantern can also be fixed with sticks to hang decorations like Chinese knots and small light strings.
And there you have it, your very own handmade New Year lantern, ready to accompany you from New Year's Eve to the Lantern Festival.
Everything is Attainable - Fortune Stick Cylinder
Today's youth particularly enjoy temple visits, seeking solace in serene Zen spaces and choosing to offer incense in pursuit of progress. "Fortune-seeking" has become a popular method, both online and offline, creating a unique hustle and bustle during the New Year.
Therefore, a fortune stick cylinder is an essential New Year decoration. You can print your wishes for the coming year using the HPRT label makers, unlocking your fortune for the Year of the Dragon.
Materials Needed: Ice cream sticks, HPRT label printer, a pen holder (any unused jars or containers at home), red A4 paper.
First, wrap the pen holder in a festive paper and print your blessings and wishes for the coming year using the HPRT label maker.
Peel off the backing of the label and fold it around an ice cream stick. And just like that, your fortune stick is ready. Place the prepared sticks into the fortune cylinder, and you can shake it with family and friends during the Lunar New Year!
Beautiful Blessings - Photo Frame
What do we frame in photo frames? Photos of ourselves, family, friends, partners, idols, or an inspiring quote? Perhaps the first calligraphy written by hand or every beautiful blessing… Whatever it is, they have touched our hearts deeply.
There's always a moment that tugs at the heartstrings, deserving to be cherished forever. A photo frame captures the beauty within us, making memories visible and tangible.
Materials Needed: HPRT label printer, photo frame, red A4 paper.
Cut the paper to fit the photo frame and print your desired content, such as quotes or blessings, using the HPRT label printer. You can choose different fonts, colors, sizes, and styles to personalize and beautify your label.
Peel off the backing of the printed label and stick it onto the cut red paper. Arrange it as you like, and you'll have a photo frame full of hopeful wishes for life.
