Hi everyone! Kim here, this week has been bananas, I apologize. Better late than never, right?! As promised on our Facebook live video, here is a quick DIY tutorial for the lanterns we made for the Light the Night event September 28 at Wash Park, Denver, CO.
** We hope to see you there! **
This is a super fast and fun project! You can use it to create a magical atmosphere, for fun campfire-esq story time, to decorate your kids room, to use for a night time walk, the possibilities are endless!
Supplies you’ll need:
. mason jar

. design printed on computer paper (cut to height of jar)
. flame-less candle
STEP 1 | Collect all of your supplies
STEP 2 | Take measured print out, roll and insert into mason jar
STEP 3 | Measure twine or wire to arm span and cut
STEP 4 | Fold twine or wire so it is folded into 1/3
