Relaxing Lantern

We'll show you how to make a lantern using an LED candle. Fill your home with warm, comforting light during those long winter nights.

You will need...

- Materials: -

  • A4 size plain paper with a borderless photo or design paper in a landscape orientation
  • LED candle (available in stores, see the image)
  • Wine glass (optional)

- Tools -

  • Glue
  • Eyeleteer, ball point pen, or anything with a sharp point, straight, pointed implement
  • Small towel
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or cutter

- Before you start -

  • Make sure you do NOT use a real candle because we're using paper and it'll burn easily.
  • - Epson iPrint lets you print photos easily.
  • Make sure you have your design paper ready in advance.

How to

1 Place a printout with the printed side facing down, and then apply glue to one short edge.
Stick the short edges to make a tube.
Roll up the small towel and stuff it into the tube.
2 Make as many holes as you want using a tool such as an eyeleteer or a ball point pen. Try picking out zodiac signs or letters or anything you like!
Pull out the rolled up towel, cover the LED candle with the paper, and your relaxing lantern is complete!
Make sure you don't injure yourself when making holes.
3 Draw lines on A4 size paper using a ruler as shown in the image on the left, cut along the solid line, and then fold along the dotted lines to make a house shaped lantern.
Make a few to create a small town of lanterns that'll light up your room.
4 Draw a half circle on A4 size paper using a pair of compasses (or anything round such as a dish) as shown in the image on the left, cut along the solid lines, and then stick the edges together.
5 Put an LED candle in a wine glass, put the paper over it, and voila! A lantern table lamp! Ideal for dinner tables or bed-side tables. The beauty of this lamp is that you can take it anywhere you want.
