Halloween Paper Lantern

Halloween Paper Lantern

Earlier in the year we made a lantern to celebrate Chinese New Year.

I thought this would adapt well for our Halloween festivities, so we made one again! As Ruby is now a dab-hand (so she reckons) I'll let her explain when you need:

You also need a battery operated tea light and some scissors. We used a lampshade that the previous house owners had left behind, but you can get them in Wilkinson, Ikea and DIY stores for around £2.

The full instructions are over on the Chinese lantern post, but basically you just cover the shade, decoupage style with tissue paper. I was unable to get any photos of this stage as it all got a bit messy! Once fully covered allow to dry overnight.
