fun halloween lanterns

Yes, I am still at it, making Halloween stuff…  I just love easy-to-do projects and this is one that is super easy!

I bought some great little and cheap paper lanterns at the craft store in several Halloweeny colors.


Then I got out my favorite punches and got to work!


For some, I just punched out Halloween shapes and added them on with pop dots.


For Frankie, I got a bit more creative…  making a round Frankenstein, by the way, is difficult.  If he isn’t somewhat squareish, he just doesn’t seem to be Frankie enough…  oh well – I still gave it a shot!  I used punches and scissors to create him…


All in all, it was a fun little chance to be creative.  When I hang them, I think I will just use some battery-powered lights – I will see what I can find.

Anyway – one more week and a day… then it is time for the Halloween Hauntings to begin!
