Kids Halloween Lanterns

Halloween is creeping up quickly, and what better way to get in the spirit than by making crafts like these Halloween Lanterns that are both easy to make and kid-proof!

All you need is these items:

"Halloween colored" plastic cups
Permanent markers
LED tealight candles

I found the colored cups and LED tea lights at Zurchers party store in party packs of 50 and the tealights in a set of 15. *Make sure you buy LED lights than run by battery and not regular tealights. 

Use a permanent marker to draw faces on the upside-down cups. 

Put 1-2 LED tealights under each cup. I found it worked best to have two under the green and orange cups and just one under the white. The tealights flicker like real candles, which makes the illumination beautiful.

Use as decorations on a table, mantel, shelf, stairs, and more. My kids have fun using them as night lights in their rooms!

Have a fun and safe Halloween!!!
