Hi there fellow Hometalkers. I have made this glowing Halloween lantern for my windowsill.

It's just spooky how quick and inexpensive it was to achieve!

I bought a Halloween gift bag today along with a set of 35 warm white fairy lights.There's an amazing choice of Halloween gift bags available at the moment. I fancied this green one which I thought might look pretty as a lantern.

Next I plugged in the fairy lights.....

I chose warm white but coloured lights such as green or red would look effective too.

After Halloween I will use the LEDs for another project.

I then popped the lights in to the gift bag and there you have it. The first photo here was taken on my daughters new camera.

I really like how the LEDs illuminate the handles too and make them look neon.

I took these last two pics on my little Nexus.

I think I might have to invest in a camera.

I love Halloween. Even though the "kids" are older I still love to decorate. This lantern will look spooktacular in our window. I hope some of you have a go too!- Don't forget to post pics if you do.

    this looks very nice and interesting. if you notice, I am a Pfeiffer here in the USA, in the state of Ohio. My husbands family actually originated in Germany - Poland, and they spelled the name then as Phiffer. Have a great day !

      Hi Carol. Thank you for your kind comment. Always nice to meet a fellow Pfeifer! My father came from South Germany and researched that we came from pig farmers!

    Really??? That is so cool. My husband, her father and his grandfather were all farmers. Gary's dad (my husband is Gary) during his life farmed and raised various animals, PIGS, steers, sheep, turkeys by the thousands. I would like to research some day. Gary's great great grandfather left behind 18 siblings in Poland/Germany. Sure would be interesting to find out more about those long ago relatives. Take care Pfeifer!! Hope this note finds you well and happy.
