A short break from Christmas because Halloween is here!!!!
If you haven't made a pumpkin lantern yet these are the quickest, easiest lanterns you can make.
There's a free download at the end of this post.

Print onto any colour paper - the choice is yours. Paper is better than card because it allows the light, from your candle, to shine through.
These lanterns have been printed onto UK A4 landscape.
If you have a laminator - run them through it. This will waterproof them and they will happily stand outside even if it rains.
After laminating simply roll the lantern into a tube, prick holes top, middle and bottom and fix with small brads.
If you haven't laminated you can glue or tape.
Place a night light into a glass or jam jar and pop the lantern over it.
They look good in daylight but they're fab when it gets dark!
Cut across the middle of the print-out and you have two shorter lanterns.
The best thing is - when Halloween's over, open the brads, and these lanterns can be stored flat in an envelope - ready for next year.

Just a few words of caution here, as with all candles, it isn't safe to leave them unsupervised, especially around children.
Adding sand or a small amount of water to the jar before inserting the candle is a good extra safety precaution.
