Potato Printed Poppy Lanterns

Although are time after school is super busy at the moment, I always try to make time to do a craft around Remembrance Day.  This year we have been making potato printed poppy lanterns.

Make sure you follow my seasonal craft board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own potato printed poppy lanterns you will need:

  • Red paper
  • Black paper
  • Tracing paper
  • Potatoes
  • Paint
  • Knife
  • Glue

Cut your potato in half, on one half draw the shape of a poppy and cut it out and on the other do the same for a leaf.  A good tip: if you have a cookie cutter, use that to make your shape.  It will take your potato shapes to the next level.

On your tracing paper start printing your poppies and leaves.  An alternative to potato printing, is to simply use coloured pens like sharpies.

When the paint has dried, add some coloured paper to make a boarder at the top and bottom.  I used double sided tape rather than glue.

Fold your paper round to make a cylinder and stick the sides together.  Again, I used double sided tape, but you could use stapler or glue.

Finally add a handle to the top of your lantern.
