These spooky lanterns cost very little to make. Black-and-white drawings found on the internet were printed on vellum paper and inserted in secondhand 8 x 10 picture frames. The frames were then fastened together to make a square, and then a candle was placed inside.
picture frames ( we used 12 frames to make 3 lanterns)
white vellum paper
clear packing tape
black duct tape
black craft paint and paintbrush
black spray paint (matte)
3 votive candles
For each lantern, use four picture frames that are all the same size. We were lucky to find a bunch of standard-size frames at a resale shop. Discount stores often carry basic frames that will cost just a dollar or two.
Remove the matting and glass from the frame and set aside. Keep the brackets or nails that hold the glass in place.
Lay the frames out on a tarp and spray them with black spray paint. Let dry and then turn them over to spray the back and sides.
