A printable winter cabin craft activity template.

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

Add to the festive spirit of your holiday decorations by including this cute cabin lantern in your display. With an LED tealight twinkling inside, the lantern will look fabulous on any mantle, tabletop, or desk!

To Make Each Lantern You Will Need:

  • 1 template (best printed on colored cardstock)
  • scissors
  • glue
  • 1 LED tealight
  • (optional) – cotton balls to represent snow on the roof

How to Make the Winter Cabin Lantern

There are 3 pieces to the template:

  • Section A (the floor and two end walls of the cabin)
  • 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 cabin is ready to assemble.

Apply glue to the wall tabs and assemble. It is easiest to put the glue on and stick the walls on 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 door, and place it inside!

More detailed instructions are included in the download.

To make a truly awesome winter display, why not include several cabins to form a small sparkling village!
