Looking for a fun Pokémon craft to do with the kids (or make for yourself)? This one is fun for a lazy afternoon or for a party!DIY Pokémon Inspired Snorlax Lantern - a fun craft idea for Pokémon and Pokémon Go fans!

Who better to keep you company as you drift off to sleep than a Snorlax?! A Snorlax loves to sleep and is so big that they are usually in the way. This one can even help you see at night if you can’t quite sleep as well as he does. This lantern is as adorable in the daytime as it is lit up at night. Just add a battery operated light or, even better, a remote operated LED light and you have the perfect Pokémon companion.

What you need to make a Pokémon Snorlax lantern:

  • White or cream paper lantern
  • Black and Blue acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush (a small one for detail and larger one for quicker painting)
  • Black and blue cardstock (heavy paper)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Battery operated candleDIY Pokémon Inspired Snorlax Lantern - a fun craft idea for Pokémon and Pokémon Go fans!

  5. Fill in the rest of the Snorlax’s head with paint leaving the face white. (Tip: be careful not to get too much paint on your brush, paper lanterns are thin and you don’t want to add too much paint to weaken the paper).DIY Pokémon Inspired Snorlax Lantern - a fun craft idea for Pokémon and Pokémon Go fans!
