Hello there! Today is Tuesday, which means another free design to add to your Silhouette library. Don’t you just love that?! This week’s campfire design was practically begging to be made into this kid friendly lantern.
To make this campfire lantern you’ll need:
- clear plastic jar with handle (I found these in the party supply aisle of the craft store. I think they’re called paint can favors.)
- orange tissue paper
- flameless tea light
- yellow, orange, red, and brown adhesive vinyl
- Begin by opening up the campfire design in Silhouette Studio. Ungroup the design and then cut each flame out of the corresponding color of vinyl. I decided to keep it simple and only cut the log outline (instead of the detailed log design) out of brown vinyl. Once they’re cut use the hook tool to remove the excess vinyl from each design.
- Line up the designs in the order they need to be layered.
- Cut a piece of transfer paper large enough to cover the campfire design. Starting with the small yellow flame, pick up the vinyl using the transfer paper and then remove the backing. Pick up the orange flame, then the red flame, and finally the logs until your full design is layered on your transfer paper.
- Transfer the vinyl to the jar by starting in the center and working your way out.
- Place the tissue paper in the jar, leaving a spot in the middle for the flameless tea light.
We’ve been having all kinds of fun with this lantern. It’s perfect for pretend play since there is no glass or hot flame involved. Here it is all lit up in my son’s play tent during our indoor camping adventure.
How will you be using this week’s free campfire design?
