How to make Halloween Lantern Swags:
- Start with forming the swag by layering flowers and pics. Then zip tie it when you are done to keep it together.
- If you have flowers or leaves that aren’t quite the right color, don’t be shy! Get the paint out and add a little black or another color of your choice to the edges to make it more Halloween-like.
- For your swag, leave about a hand width of room between the end of the bottom swag and the start of the top swag. This is where your funky bow will go.
- Be sure to fluff your stems and bring them to life. You don’t want them laying flat!
- Add some fun items like witch legs, spiders or pumpkins for additional character!
- Lanterns are available in so many different sizes. Decorate smaller one’s to use on the center of a table or each end of a mantel. You can also decorate two or more and use them on your porch or around your front door.
- Use multiple types of ribbon for your bow to add fun and interest.
- Do not burn a real candle inside your lanterns because the heat will escape the lantern onto the swag and create a fire hazard. These lanterns would be perfect for battery-operated candles! I love those and use them all the time. They even have them with remotes now!
- Does making a bow make you nervous? Watch the video to see step-by-step instructions. I promise, you can do it!
