These cute lanterns won’t need a candle or batteries. You could put a tea light or glow sticks in them, but we usually just leave them as is.
To make the lantern, fold a sheet of paper hotdog style (the lengthwise way). Starting on the folded edge, use your ruler to draw lines spacing about an inch apart. Make sure you leave 1/2 inch free space near the adjacent edge.
You can now cut the lines (starting on the fold) using scissors. Make sure to stop 1/2 inch before reaching the edge.
Now, unfold…take one end and wrap around. Staple the top and bottom of the lantern. (image above)
The kids love this part! Using shapes cut out of the paper, add faces to your Halloween creatures. If you don’t want to cut out shapes, you could use a black marker to add the faces.
For the Ghost, we added black eyes and a big circle mouth.
For the bat we added white fangs, creepy red eyes, pointed ears and wings to the back. Try making a black cat or black spider too!
For the jack o’ lantern we used black shapes for the eyes, nose and mouth.
Happy Halloween Crafting.Such a fun craft for the kiddos this Halloween season! We have even had the kids make these on halloween night right before trick-or-treating.
