Step 1:

Disassemble the LED Halloween lantern then remove the vellum cover and candle. Next, remove the skull from the stand. Spray paint these items with two coats: lantern frame, top of the lantern, stand of the skull, and wooden chess piece.  Let them dry.

Step 2:

Take the vellum cover and trace it on the chopping mat. Cut it carefully using a pair of scissors. Take a straight edge and razor to make some score marks on the corners. Just follow the pattern of the original one. Fold it over gently to make a crease. Add some hot glue to the ends to secure them.

Step 3:

Insert the faux glass on the lantern frame and flip it over to put back the candle. Next, put the top back on.

Step 4:

Put some hot glue and fix all adhesive to the chess piece and insert it upside down on the stand. Next, hot glue the napkin ring at the bottom of the lantern.

Step 5:

Cut the bamboo wreath apart to make a tiny one. Wrap the floral wire around to secure. Next, wrap the berries on the vine around the small wreath in a diagonal pattern. Take more of the berries on the vine and wrap them around diagonally on the stand all the way down to the bottom. Then take another one and wrap it around the lantern from the handle to the napkin ring.

Step 6:

Cut the faux leaves a little bit smaller and glue them on the vines. Next, glue the faux flowers, seeds, and small pumpkins to the stand and vines. Put a small twine bow at the bottom of the stand. Glue the stand to a circle of wood and paint it with antique wax.
