I like the looks of the bigger one but the little one has an LED candle in it!! What to do !!?!

You should have 2 shells with inner props. On the little one, remove the LED unit from the bottom. It's hard to do with out ripping it

Step 3: Tear Down.

Take all the component pieces apart.

One thing that's handy is that the upper ring can be used to align holes you need to poke through the LED unit

Step 4: Cut and Bend the Wire From the Big Lantern
