Today I made a homemade lantern out of the bottom of a milk jug. I cut the bottom part of a milk jug out and wrapped it with stationary paper. I stappled the stationary paper on the jug. I also cut a shape out of the middle of the paper. I wish I would have a chosen a different shape that was more distint. I chose a pumpkin. I also painted the back of the milk jug where the shape was cut out to make it illuminate color. I added ribbon to the top and bottom of the paper. Every year I put out luminaries with my pumpkins. I wanted to change it up and this is an inexpensive way to add lanterns to the yard. I am going to make another one with a better shape or maybe to spell a halloween phrase.
