Step 1: Parts List

For this project you'll need:

An empty tissue box
A mason jar
Light bright pegs (as many as you want....they make some pretty neat ones these days)

Step 2: Rip out plastic

After you have all your parts your going to want to rip out all the plastic lining from you tissue box, you don't want it to melt while the candle is burning

Step 3: GET CREATIVE

Pop your Light Brite begs into the tissue box. This is where you get to be artistic. For the example I did a boring old smiley face....I know you can do better!

Step 4: Drop candle in jar

Drop you candle inside your jar....You may also use a candle that is already in a jar....the brighter the better!

Step 5: Aattach box to jar

Now you're pretty much done all you have to do is slide the tissue box over the jar.

Step 6: Your Done~

Congratulations! You;ve succesfully made your fist Light Bright Lanter. All that's left to do is fire her up (just light the candle) It should look somthing like the picture( my picture didn't turn out the greatest....it's birghter in person)

BE CAREFUL AND ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR LANTERN>>>YOU DON"T WANT TO BURN DOWN THE HOUSE

good idea matt and yeah the pictures were bigger but i had to shrink them on acount of it would have takin a good hour for them to upload
Woot for Vince! I just had the idea that you could line the inside of the box w/ black paper so only the pegs would light up.

The picture of it lit isnt the greatest...Maybe if i could win a digital camera in a certain contest i would be able to take better pictures for my instructables
I agree - the size of these pictures makes it incredibly hard to see what's going on. You know, a $20 webcam would take better pictures than this. Looks like it may be a good project, though...?
