A lantern (I bought mine from Target and it was on sale for $5.00)
A touch light
A sharp tipped knife (I wanted to use my box cutter but couldn't find it)
"Creepy Cloth" (The Dollar Tree) or a black Halloweenish bow
A bag of creatures (The Dollar Tree)
And one black poster board
The first thing I did was measure the inside of the lantern door horizontally and vertically so I knew what size I needed to cut the poster board to block out the windows.
I used the first piece I cut as a guide to cut the other three.
I wanted the letters on the front of the lantern to be super bright so everyone can read it in the dark so I used some extra pieces of the poster board to black out the opening on the top of the lantern as well.
I then measured the frame to see where I needed to start and end the letters.
I then stenciled "SORRY NO CANDY" on the poster board piece that was going on the front of the lantern.
I cut out the letters using the tip of the knife.
I then cut a piece of wax paper the same size as the sign. Using double sided sticky tape I taped it to the back of the sign.
I put the black poster board pieces over the windows on the inside of the lantern. I put the touch light in the lantern then wrapped the "Creepy Cloth" around the lanterns handle and stuck some of the plastic spiders in the cloth. Done and done!
If you do give out candy make an Out Of Candy glowing sign. So once all your candy is gone you can place it outside of your door to let all the tricker-treaters know.
