Lantern, lantern, shining bright …
… as the owls fly through the night!
Would you like to make your very own lantern to celebrate St. Martin’s Day on 11 November?
Here in South Tyrol, we always look forward to the St. Martin’s Day lantern parade. To all the colourful lights, happy faces, and traditional songs. If you’d like to join in and make your very own lantern, we’ve got something very special for you this year: an owl lantern! First, draw the outline of an owl with its wings spread out in flight on a piece of paper. Once you’re happy with how it looks, use it as a template to cut two silhouettes out of brown cardboard. Then cut out holes for the eyes, beak, and tummy and stick yellow crepe paper behind them. Now, stick both halves of the owl to the round box that cream-cheese triangles came in and glue the front and back wings together so that they stick out at the sides. Now all that’s left to do is attach a piece of wire as a handle and place a tealight inside. By the way, you’ll get lots of fantastic craft tips just like this during your holiday at the Familienhotels Südtirol, some of the best luxury family hotels in Italy!
