Dragon Boat Ornament

2 Hours


Joong or Tsung-Tse originally was the name of a food served during the Dragon Boat Festival in China. Made of rice dumpling wrapped in bamboo leaves, it is in the shape of a hexahedron (any polyhedron with six faces). It later became a yarn wrapped ornament.

We will use cardboard and colorful yarns to make these festive and decorative ornaments.
