What fun it is to discover what you can make with the Cricut Maker—and especially when it comes to Halloween decorations! Our mini paper lanterns for Halloween are cut from one sheet of 8.5×11 black metallic paper. And we used a half sheet of white vellum to make the frosted windows.

You can find both of these papers from PaperPapers.com. Members can download the SVG cut file or printable template and have these beauties cut and assembled in an afternoon!

Haunted Halloween Decorations to Make at Home

With the Cricut Maker score tool creasing the corners, it is easy to assemble our paper lanterns for Halloween in just a few minutes. Once made, you have spooky but oh, so pretty decorations that are perfect for your mantel, your dinner table, or your bookshelf. Just scroll down to download your SVG cut file. Or, you can download our printable template and cut these lanterns by hand.

Safety First!

Remember, that you will want to use battery tea lights for these lanterns, which you can find at your craft store or most drugstores this time of year. My battery candles actually flicker, so they look very real behind the frosty windows of these lanterns. If you plan on making these paper lanterns for Halloween, you’ll probably like our papercut village!
