Halloween Haunted House Lantern

Hi there!, today I have for you this Halloween Haunted House Lantern , I like this craft because I can use it in two ways: as a lantern to decorate any spot in your house or party, and as a candy box to give candies to the children; It is simple and unexpensive to make, and very appropriate for this occasion.

Supplies to make this Halloween Haunted House Lantern :

 

To start, download the template :

  • If you have Silhouette Cameo Machine, download this file haunted_house_studio and cut it
  • If you do not have Silhouette Cameo Machine, download this file haunted_house_pdf, print it and cut it

Once you have cut the template you must have two pieces like these:

Take the the ruler and the bone folder, then fold between each side of the Halloween Haunted House Lantern, as the photos show

Repeat this step with the lower tabs of the lantern as the photos show

Your two pieces should look like the following

This last step I leave it to your choose, if you want,  you can add a little bit of glue on the upper edges of the house and then place the roof (this option is the best if you are going to use the lantern as candy box); or you can just place the roof without gluing it to make it easier to place the LED tealight candle (to use it as Halloween Haunted House Lantern ).
