Spook-tac-u-lar Day 14 And A Winner: Halloween Hanging Lanterns

For a bonus Halloween project, scroll down to the previous posting to view the Monster Cake I made with my sister.

Welcome back to Day 14 of Spook-tac-u-lar Halloween Crafts.  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you today at when you are finished here.

Also, today I am announcing the winner from Monday's giveaway.  Remember to come back on Monday for a new giveaway and chance to win. I used to select a winner and the winner is comment number 7, which belongs to Running Turtle said... EEK...that is so cute!! That would look great on my front door!!  TinaB
Tina, I will send you an email and get this mailed out to you.
For today's project, I made some hanging lanterns to share with you.  I made three different lanterns.  I hung them up in the door for the picture, but they will be hung on my mom's deck for the Halloween Party.
I started out with some plain lanterns from the $1 area in Michaels.
For the pumpkin, I used the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut Cartridge to cut the face in black cardstock and then hot glued them to the orange lantern.
For the ghost, I used the Pumpkin Carvings Cartridge for the eyes and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the mouth and cut them out of black cardstock and hot glued them to the white lantern.
The green lantern is my favorite, because I made it to look like Mikey from Monster's Ink.  I used Smiley Cards for the mouth, Mini Monsters for the horns and George and Basic Shapes for the eye.  I added a shine to the eye with a white line.  All of these were hot glued onto the lantern.
