Pinterest Inspiration: Chinese New Year

Pinterest inspiration is my place to show you what I’ve been falling in love with recently over on Pinterest. This is one of my favourite place for finding inspiration and I can easily loose a couple of hours pouring through all the beautiful things to make.

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year will be celebrated on the 8th of February this year and it will mark the beginning of the year of the monkey. If you want to celebrate Chinese New Year why not try making your own decorations such as these paper lanterns with a tutorial and printable over on Marie’s Pastiche.

 

 

 

Traditionally, red envelopes are given to children with gifts of money in. I found this cute tutorial to make your own from ThriftyJinxy.

 

 

 

You could also, go all out and crochet one of these amigurumi monkeys to mark the occasion. The pattern is by Amigurumi to go adn is really detailed with lots of pictures.

 

I rally love learning about other cultures and traditions and what better way to find out about Chinese new Year than by making all the decorations yourself!
