This lantern is super quick and easy to do
Perfect for those who need some last minute Halloween decorations
I opened my Cricut Craft Room today to find I had a new free cartridge - 3D lanterns and I love to try out anything new so I set to work straight away
Now I think this is how you are mean to use these images but my way is even quicker and lets you use real candles, rather than fake ones

What you will need:
Sellotape or Glue
Cricut with 3D lantern cartridge
Measure the circumference & height of your jam jar. Then take one of the lantern images and expand it in Cricut Craft Room until it is slightly larger than your jar (as you want it to overlap a little)
Take your black card and cut out the lantern image using your Cricut
Cut out a piece of tissue paper that is slightly smaller than the size of your cut of black card and stick it to the back so the tissue shines through
Wrap the card round the jar so the black card is on the outside and the tissue is against the jar, then tape the overlapping edges of black card together so that it forms a cylinder around the jar.
Drop your tea light inside and light it - making sure you keep the flame away from the paper!!!!
Easy peasy and super effective for any Halloween household!
