Simple Halloween Lantern

Now that the kids are back in school, I'm hoping to have a little more time to begin projects again. I love this time of year when the weather begins to cool down and all my favorite holidays are coming up.

Halloween is just around the corner so here is a simple project that anyone can do. All you need for this little decoration is a black lantern that I got at Walmart in the camping section and a variety of Halloween colored ribbon.

Since the lantern was already black it made it easy to just cut various ribbon and tie to the top.

You can also add little accents if you want, like this clip on spider that I picked up at the craft store. Viola, super easy!
