Fire Lanterns for Bonfire Night – 10 Minute Crafts

With Bonfire Night coming up, the little ones and I decided to put together a crafty activity around the theme of fire. They have no patience for lengthy projects at the moment so we went for lanterns that would take us under 10 minutes.

The bonfire lanterns we came up with can also double up as cupcake containers, or if you use a lidded plastic tub instead of a glass jar, it could be used as a night light.

What you Need

These lanterns take less than 10 minutes to make and they look like fire, only safer!
Clean jam jar and lid
red, orange and yellow tissue paper
PVA glue
LED tea light
brown wooden lolly sticks
scissors
Bostik Glu Dots

 

What to Do

Start by cutting the tissue paper into rough squares.

      Easy peasy and so quick! I didn’t do these little lanterns any favours with my photos but it really was a quick job and we’ve been leaving ours on all night as night lights. They’re perfect!
