When making your lantern, consider how long your matches are and how long your wicks will be, my wicks were really short and i could not light my lantern without using long matches.

Step 1: Materials
- Glass jar of your choosing (bigger the better).
- tea light candles.
- wire coat hanger.
- tin can.
- something to cut the coat hanger with.
Step 2: Pull Candles Apart and Melt Wax
After you have done this, bend a spout onto the rim of your tin can but be careful not to cut yourself.
Boil some water over a stove ready for the next step ?
Step 3: Melting and Pouring Wax
When the wax is completely melted, pour the wax into the jar and carefully place however many wicks you want into the jar of wax.
Place in a sink of cold water and allow to cool.
Step 4: Handle and Hook
then form a circle, bend 90degrees up, for your handle to desired length (remember when its lit it will be hot directly above) and bend down again. Put the end between the circle and the jar and form a loop (see picture).
Make a bend in the top of the handle (pictured) then bend a loop in the stem of the hook around the handle of your lantern.
