Intro: Box 'o Lantern
This is an interesting substitu for Jack'o lanterns, and it will last for years.
It's a simple box shaped Lantern.
What will you need:
- Some thick paper or cardboard
- some orange and black paint.
- a scalpel
- some tape
- a small candle
< a ruler
- some wire (optional)
Here's how it looks.
Take the cardboard, and mark five 14 cm x 14cm squares.
Then cut them with the scalpel, and a ruler.
Here's the most efficient way to cut them.
Save this image and print it to use as a template to carve ONLY ONE square.
Paint all of the sides orange if you will use it as an hand-hled lantern, or leave one unpainted if it will be put on a flat surface. Mine is hand-held So all of the sides are painted, and then decorate them with black paint.
Put them in a grid like this. and tape them all together.
If you are puting it on a flat surface jour'e done, you just need to put in the candle an your'e done.
If you wish to make it hand-held. Continue:
punch two holes on the sides, put the rope, plastic tube... inside and tie them one the ends like this:
And your'e done. Have fun!
