Halloween Lantern | Silhouette Glow-In-The-Dark Vinyl

Hi Cheryl here again.

I just love this time of year watching the leaves fall off the trees and the green is turning to red and orange and the kids are getting excited.

Yes it’s time to dress up again so what will I be this year?

Craft Materials Used

Silhouette Premium Glow-In-The-Dark Vinyl
DST / Wet Glue

Open Your File

In your software open your file in the design space and workout what the different pieces are for and if you need to increase the size do it here so all your pieces will increase to fit.

Ungroup The Pieces

Here you want to un-group the pieces to make things easier so right click on the box and select un-group and then you can start to cut your pieces.

Select The Correct Cutting Mat

If you start off cutting the main pieces first when you have got your piece laid out on your mat and happy with the size make sure you have the correct size of mat as per the design page settings then hit to send.

Selecting The Correct Material

When you come to the send screen make sure you select the correct material as this will decide on your cut settings, also make sure your file fits within the cut screen then you can hit send to start cutting.

Prep Your Mat

Take your mat and take off your cut piece and put aside and continue to cut the rest of your materials ensuring that each time you pick the correct material before cutting.

Build The Lantern

Now all the pieces have been cut it’s time to build the lantern up. Build the main part of the lanterns and then before you stick it all together.

Line the webs up against the thin lines next to the skulls and put the webs on the outside.

Adding The Skulls

Now the fun bit time to put the Skulls on you will see as you hold the vinyl it will light up.

Then put the 2 main sections together and before gluing the lid put the handle through the top and finish off with some ribbon.

Spooktacular Lantern

I absolutely loved this project and considering I’m not a big fan of Halloween I was really happy with how this turned out and I know that if you are having a Halloween party then these lanterns would make great decorations but make sure to only use battery lights and not real candles. This vinyl is suitable for a lot of Halloween decorations.

As I put the remainder of the vinyl into my drawer it was all lit up and it made me think of other things that I could make. I hope that you will show us what you make and would love for you to post them on the blog for us all to see.
