Christmas Hut Lantern Craft Template

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

A printable Christmas hut craft activity template.

Looking for a Christmas craft activity that is a little different? This papercraft will be sure to light up your Christmas décor!

Add to the festive spirit of your Christmas decorations by including this cute hut lantern in your display. With an LED tea light twinkling inside, the lantern will look fabulous on any tabletop/desk!

To Make Each Lantern You Will Need:

  • 1 template (best printed on heavier, coloured card)
  • scissors
  • PVA glue
  • 1 LED tea light
  • (optional) – cottonwool to represent snow on the roof

How to Make the Christmas Hut Lantern

There are 3 pieces to the template:

  • Section A (the floor and two end walls of the hut)
  • Section B (one side wall and half the roof)
  • Section C (the other side wall and other half of the roof.)

After cutting along the outer edges of the sections and folding back the tabs, the hut lantern is ready to assemble.

PVA glue works best on thicker card. It is easiest to put the glue on and stick the walls one at a time. After the walls are glued in place, apply glue to the roof tabs and assemble the roof.

The most exciting step in making this resource is the final one: turn on the tea light, open the barn door and place it inside the lantern!

More detailed instructions are included in the download.

To make a truly awesome Christmas display, why not include several huts – to form a small sparkling village?
