Halloween lighted wood lanterns

I saw a project here on ryobi nation, and decided to put my own style into it, I just took some old wood pieces and cut them to size, I started to use a jig saw to cut out the characters until my wife came down and yell at me that it was too loud ( well it was around 3am, but I don't get home from work until 2am, so I'm up, lol) so I switch to a coping saw to finish the job, painted the outside with which I think are Halloween colors, and use neon paint on the inside so it would glow better, when I finished before the paint had time to fully dry, my 2 grandkids grab 1 each to take home

  • Great job on these! It's always a treat to see project inspired by one of our How-To projects. Your grand kids must have really loved the chance to take home a piece of your handiwork.
