It’s starting to look like my lantern decorating is becoming an annual Halloween tradition. Last year I had fun decorating the lanterns in this post and this post. And this year I’ve been at it again. Here are a couple of my creepy creations, each created with vinyl from Stampin' Up! and lanterns (and a vase) from IKEA:
I was excited to see this blood red lanterns this year, just right for a little vampire bat decor. I vant to suck your blood!
I love the shadow this style of lantern casts.
I couldn’t resist doing another spider lantern, but this time I used a jumbo-size lantern. It makes a freaky statement!
My vinyl fun didn’t stop at lanterns. I also adhered it to this tall, skinny vase.
I added some Stickles (glitter glue) from Ranger to the letters for a sparkling finish.
It looks like a spider has already moved into my vase. She appears to be a widow. Eep!
I made this flower with a little crepe paper, a spray-misted doily, and a bitty spider cupcake liner from Martha Stewart Crafts.
Note: Please keep in mind that these lanterns do get hot. Follow product instructions to ensure your safety. Thanks!
