Halloween "BOO" Tea Light Lantern Set

Welcome kids and families to your front door with Halloween lanterns! Designer Grace created a lantern set that would look great in a window or on a front porch. We love how it looks lit up!

Designed by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 20 minutes
Level: Beginner
Size: 4” x 11” x 2 ½”

I love how easy and inexpensive this Halloween décor was. It will be a perfect addition to my porch come October 31st. My favorite part is how the shapes illuminate at night once tea light candles are added to it.glue-dots-boo-tealight-holder-set-B

Here's what you need:

  • Craft Glue Dots®
  • Brown paper bag
  • Letter stickers
  • Glittered Cardstock - Die Cuts with a View
  • Vellum
  • Border Stampglue-dots-boo-tealight-holder-set-O
  • Black ink
  • Cut files
  • Die cut machine
  • Circle template
  • Scissors
  • Battery operated candles

Here's what you do:

  1. Cut out pumpkin and bat shapes using your die cut machine.
  2. Stamp the distressed background onto the brown paper bag using black ink.
  3. Make a 3” circle mark on the center of the bag using a template. Cut out the circle (only from the front of the bag) with a pair of scissors.
  4. Cut out a piece of vellum, about 4” square, and adhere to the inside of the bag behind the open circle using 1" Glue Lines.
  5. Adhere the glittered jack-o-lantern and bat shapes onto the circle over the vellum pieces using Pop Up Glue Dots.
  6. Add the letter stickers on the bottom of each bag.
  7. Place a battery operated tea light at the bottom of each bag and turn on at night.

NOTE: If you are using real candles, place the tea lights in a small jar like a baby food jar before placing in to the bag. This will prevent you from accidentally burning the bag when you light the candles.
