Coco Paper Lantern | Designs By Miss Mandee

Coco Paper Lantern

It’s officially October—my favorite month for designs! I’ve been looking forward to fall/Halloween designs since about January, and now it’s finally here. And what better way to kick things off than with a new installment in my Disney Paper Lanterns series? Get ready to celebrate Dia de los Muertos with this fun Coco paper lantern!

I recently watched Coco for the first time, and I loved it! The animation was captivating, the story was so heartwarming, and there were some great little laugh out loud moments to boot. I remember having Day of the Dead celebrations at school and attending community celebrations. Although I don’t have latin heritage, I grew up in an area with a vibrant hispanic presence, and I know Coco really struck a cord with some of my friends.

Not gonna lie, designing the skeletons was definitely my favorite part of this one! I just think seeing their rib cages stand out against their silhouettes is so fun. I really like the decorations going across the top of the design as well, though!

To learn how to assemble my paper lanterns, see this tutorial.

I use a Cricut Explore to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating this delicate paper cut, see the FAQ section on my website.

Like most all my paper lanterns, removing the final design from your cutting mat is as much of an art as the cut itself, so be sure to go slowly.

Enjoy putting my Coco paper lantern together! What plans do you have for this lantern? Do you celebrate Dia de los Muertos, or are you just a fan of the movie?

    Thank you Mandee. My daughters birthday is coming up and it’s Coco themed. So hard to find anything Coco right now. These lanterns will be great. Question. Do you have any side face silhouettes of any Coco characters? Thanks again!
