Reindeer Lanterns – 10 Minute Crafts

I sometimes find that last-minute, quick activities end up looking far better than crafty projects we spend ages on. Our reindeer lanterns certainly did not take us more than ten minutes to make and cost us nothing as we had everything at home already. They would make nice presents from the children (grandparents, act surprised!).

This is what we used:

A few clean empty jars, labels taken off

Reindeer silhouettes (I found ours on Pinterest and printed them)

Tea light candles

Start by making strips of tissue paper. Their size does not matter so the children can do that as you are cutting around the silhouettes.

Cover the outside of a jar with glue, and add tissue paper on top.

Brush more glue on top of the tissue paper, stick your silhouette and cover it in glue as well, so you get a nice, shiny finish when it is dry.
