With Halloween just over three weeks away, I have already started making the decorations for the home. Last week I made the Boo Wall Hanging and today I made my Halloween lantern. This lantern normally sits outside with a slightly smaller one and with Summer now over I thought I would use it indoors for over the Winter.

I cleaned the lantern up as there were lots of leaf debris, dust, etc and put in a new candle. I then added a few Autumn fabric leaves, pine cones and a couple of mini dried pumpkins inside the lantern. I attached a double bow that my friend made me (there are you tube tutorials on this but I still couldn’t do it!). It was made using 5 metres of Orange Tartan wired ribbon and 5 metres of Black glitter mesh ribbon. I then added in a Gisela Graham glitter and feathered crow and a ghost coming out of a pumpkin. Everything apart from the ribbon was what I already had in the house.
Obviously I’m not going to light the candle but I think that it livens up the look of the sad lantern that would have just been left outside. It’s inspired me to make another one for Christmas! 🙂
