Halloween Crazy Lantern

Level: Medium

What you need:

  • EDUcraft Metallic Board in Silver
  • Celco All-purpose Scissors
  • 3M Scotch Magic Tape
  • Artline Black Marker
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

What you do:

Follow the easy step-by-step instructions below to create your very own Crazy Halloween Lantern.

1. Take your piece of Metallic Cardboard and on the back mark out a border 4cm in from each side of the card.
2. Using a ruler, join together to create a border. This will be where the slits will be made.
3. On the front side (shiny side), use your black marker to draw a big scary lantern face in the centre of the board. Keep in mind that the face needs to stay within the border you drew on the back.
4. Fold the board in half long ways. Using scissors, carefully cut slits into the board roughly 2cm apart. Only cut within the marked border area.
5. Unfold then roll the paper into a tube and tape where the sides meet.
6. Tape a handle on top.

Helpful Hint: Using the Metallic board gives the lantern an eerie effect when the sun or light hits it. Create many lanterns each with their own unique face.
