Halloween Decor: Spooky Glam Halloween Lantern

Hey guys, it’s Crystal here again with another Black & White Halloween project. As I mentioned in my chalkboard pumpkin tutorial I’m decorating with a black & white glam theme this year. Just a few weeks ago I was counting down the days until September so that I could start decorating for Halloween, now I can’t believe Halloween is a month and a half away! My goal is to have my house completely decked out with Halloween decor by October 1st. This spooky lantern is the latest edition to the decor and possibly my favorite so far!

Halloween Decor Lantern: Spooky Glam Lantern with Spiders

Supplies needed for this spooky glam Halloween decor project:

lanternI took this plain black lantern with an LED candle inside then turned it into a spooky, glam lantern filled with spider webs. Just a note: add the batteries to the bottom of the lantern first to avoid having to turn your lantern upside down after it’s been decorated. Not that I would know from experience. :)

You could tie the ribbon to the lantern’s handle, glue it on with hot glue, or use a less permanent version like I did and use the Hercules tape. I’m telling you, this tape has a great hold! I did this so that I could avoid damaging the paint on the lantern and it can be reused for Christmas.

I then glued the pendant onto the center of the ribbon for an added “glam” look. I’m quite pleased with my black and white collection so far and think this lantern makes a great addition.
