Take your favorite color and draw a Ramadan lantern on the cardboard box so it can be used as a window decoration. This also works easier if you print out the template in a thicker paper beforehand. This gives more stability and helps so the cardboard box does not wiggle too much while drawing the lantern on it.

Now you can decide if you want to glue the whole surface of the lantern onto one big transparent paper or if each window should get its own colored lantern. For this you will need to trim the transparent paper to the size that you need and glue it on the lantern. Be careful to not cover the transparent paper with glue but put glue on the lantern. Since most of the transparent paper is visible on both sides, it doesn’t require a complete layer of glue.
