To make one you will need…
|Lanterns by Fran W|
A clean milk carton, construction paper, craft knife, scissor, tissue paper, black construction paper, glue, chenille stem, hole punch, pencil, ruler, glow stick
For the middle of each opening, make a silhouette out of construction paper and glue it to the tissue paper. Glue the tissue paper to the inside of the carton so that your silhouette comes through when a glow stick or battery-powered candle is placed inside. Decorate the lantern with stickers, foam or construction paper cut outs and other craft supplies.
- Cutting the milk carton down to size with a serrated knife can help to make a cleaner and more even cut. (Adult supervision suggested.)
- To make a round opening in the side of the carton, trace around a lid or cup that fits in the middle. We used a frozen juice can lid.
- Measure the circle or square from the bottom to make sure the openings are the same height and measure around the sides to make sure they’re equal.
- Avoid cutting the edges when making your opening.
- After tracing out your opening for the silhouette, a push pin can be used to make tiny, close holes around the trace mark for easier cutting with a craft knife.
- To neaten up cut marks, consider making a border, as shown in the lantern with the flag.
- This lantern can be made for any holiday or occasion or just because!
