How To Make Halloween Paper Bag Lanterns

1. First sketch a masterpiece of a pumpkin face, or “BOO”, or anything else Halloween-y that you like, onto the paper bag.

2. Then, get your handy, dandy exacto knife out, and find something to put on the inside of the bag so you don’t cut through it. I had a small cutting board, a piece of wood or even cardboard would work too.

And then just cut out your design.

3. When it’s done, add a battery powered candle. Simple right? And really cute. And inexpensive, just the bags for a couple bucks, and the candles that I had already.

If your using them outside, like say lining the path to your door tonight for the trick or treaters, put some sand or small rocks in the bottom of the bag to keep them from blowing away.
