Using recycled cardboard, a piece of acrylic sheathing and Christmas lights I had on hand, I made a few Halloween lamps for the holiday.

Approximate Time: 1-2 hours

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Make a 6x6 inch box from recycled cardboard.
  2. Cut the acrylic or plexiglass sheet to fit this box.
  3. Paint pumpkin and or skull on copy paper.
  4. Make a "lightboard": a piece of cardboard that fits inside the box. Make 5/16th inch holes (20) to hold lights.
  5. Place painted or drawn pumpkin/skull on plastic sheet.
  6. Cut out the shape of the skull or pumpkin from black cardstock. This will let the light illuminate the artwork.
  7. Place lights inside, cover with the plastic/artwork and tape this on with black duck tape.

Plug in and enjoy! Don't leave unattended and always turn off if leaving!

*Editor's Note: LED Christmas lights will last longer and be less of a fire hazard than traditional incandescent lights.
