DIY Halloween Lantern

The first ever festival that was celebrated as soon as I reached England last year, was Halloween. So giving in to the freakish feel all around me, I decided to do something for Halloween. No, I did not dress up, though I did have an idea of what to dress up as, if I went out on Halloween night - my blonde wig and maxi dress I'd be Daenerys Targaryen!!!
Anyways, I added some Halloween decoration at my doorway, the least I could do within an hour on the evening of Halloween night! There was this bag of SuperDry that was lying around. I should say, its bright orange color inspired, did inspire me! I took out my pen and decided to draw on it.

First I thought, may be a pumpkin face. That would be too....... simple? So I decided on a witch!!! I drew it out - a witch flying on a broomstick, bats, stars, and a skull, and I cut it out. I made a big square cut out on the back side and hung it on the lamp outside my house! 

So, how's it? Yeah, forgot to click it at night with the night effect!!! Anyways, with all the bits & pieces I cut out, I made a few smileys, some lightening strikes and 2 ghosts and strung it on the other side.
