Super Simple Mickey Halloween Lantern Craft

Hey There!

Admittedly, I’ve been working on a Halloween lantern craft for a while.  Let’s see, I’ve tried milk jugs, soda bottles, and more, all ending in epic failure.  So, I decided to get back to basics.  Here’s what I created-


It was uber-easy too, and perfect for a table top decoration.  So, how did I do it?  First, I checked out the Mickey Cutie Bats Craft from  Which, by the way is adorable, and great for adding more decor-



I took the provided PDF from the craft on Spoonful and modified it to make a lantern.

Next step, print it out.  I used card stock, but regular ol’ copy paper works just fine.

Then, you’ll want to glue the paper in a circle with glue stick.  Me, I couldn’t find my glue stick, so I used clear packing tape.  It wasn’t ideal, but got the job done.




From here, staple the top and bottom crease to make the lantern sturdier.

Place the lantern over a batter-operated tea light.  I bought a pack of two battery-operated tea lights from the dollar store.




Also, it goes without saying, NEVER EVER use a real candle. The end result would be a disastrous fire.


Finally, turn off the lights, and enjoy!
