Halloween decor – faux chalkboard calligraphy


Besides lanterns, I used some solid cardboard to create faux chalkboard calligraphy. One with a Happy Halloween sign and one with my favourite quote: If the broom fits, ride it!



Halloween decor – The lanterns


Even though we don’t celebrate Halloween here, I wanted to have some autumn decoration, so we have crafted some pretty things. Today I want to show you the three sided lanterns we have made, by using:

  • black cardboard
  • orange tracing paper
  • glue
  • and a felt tip marker.

To make the lanterns, you have to draw the images (trees, haunted houses, cats, whatever your heart desires) on the orange tracing paper, than cut the frames of the lantern out of the cardboard, glue everything together, and there you go 🙂

I recommend using LED candles instead of real ones to protect the lanterns from catching fire.
