Parol kits include everything you need to get started building a star lantern: bamboo sticks, twist ties, rubber bands, tissue paper and cellophane. Available colors for cellophane are pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and white.

If you have participated before, please re-use parol frames from previous years.
