DIY Halloween Lantern

Halloween lantern

We’re halfway through September, the nights are getting earlier and blackberries are ready to eat, which clearly means Autumn is here.  With Autumn firmly in place we start to turn our thoughts to Halloween and all the fun it brings.  What’s not to love about dressing up and getting sweets?!  My 5 year old is excited already!

We recently received some Halloween goodies from Bostik bloggers to create with.  The boys loved all the Halloween  pieces and we made a little paper chain for the door way.  Very straightforward!

    what a fab idea! I already have a few jam jars collected so will be sure to put them to good use with the kids.

    Oh I love that! I really like anything that shows off a candle nicely and that’s so creative. I can’t believe it’s nearly Halloween already, eek!
