There are many different types of lanterns one can make for Halloween.  This is my interpretation of what a witch’s lantern would look like….Just for fun.

You will need:

  • 1 black  construction paper
  • 1 purple construction paper
  • 1 green construction paper
  • orange and white  paint
  • craft eyes
  • glue
  • scissors

What to do:

  1. Take the black and purple construction paper and place it in front of you horizontally.
  2. Cut an inch strip vertically across from one of the sides on both sheets.  The black strip will be the handle.
  3. Fold the paper in half, long ways. (like a hot dog, not a hamburger)
  4. Then cut  lines, 1 centimeter wide, an inch apart from the middle where it’s folded, leaving an inch border at the end of the paper on both sides not cut. (Do not cut all the way through.)
  5. Glue the papers together at the borders.
  6. Roll the paper in the shape of a cylinder and glue it together.  (This is the lantern)
  7. Glue on or tape on the handle for the lantern.
  8. Paint on a spider web with spiders with the white and orange paint.

  11. slide the frog in on top of lantern in front of the handle.
  12. Glue it on to make sure it stays.
