How To Make A Snow Lantern

video How To Make A Snow Lantern
Make your garden into a winter wonderland with some snow lanterns! Let it snow!
Wow... another awesome video. This one is actually really cool. Unfortunately, it does not snow here. :-( Would definitely love to try this out though. Great job.
 If it doesn't snow at your place where do you live anyway (if i may ask of course). Because over here for ones. Our little country ran out of salt.
I live in the Netherlands by the way.

 Nice.

it's funny my brother and i made i igloo ones. And i lighted 1 candle it (at night of course). That created enough light already.
If you have walkway  lights, you could build around it...less of a fire hazard.
 but fire is more awesome. xD
Touche.
 Yeah it looks good.

These are gorgeous, aren't they? I learned to make them as a kid while in Finland. Lining your walkway would be a beautiful way to welcome guests. My Mother has always made ice lanterns as well.
my family is from finland, i have always wanted to go there... the closest i got was england
If you take some high intensity LEDs you can make the lantern different colors also.

Oh, so you used the chinese food container like a mold to make snow "bricks". That could be pretty neat. :)

Nice idea. I'm sure you could build off of this and build some pretty amazing things. Even multi-layer, multi-candle sort of things. Maybe even Christmas lawn decorations? I wouldn't know though, since the nearest snow is a few hours from me.
That is a lot more light than I would have expected from a single candle. Very nice project. Someone with snow sculpting skills could probably build on this idea.
make a dinosaur with GLOWING EYES!

Really lovely. Five stars. I just have a problem with the first step. Snow. Ha! The third snow fall I had ever seen happened when I was in college. I ran out side to make a snow ball. The natives kept laughing at me because it was a "dry" snow fall and the snow would NOT pack. It was like sand. Talk about worthless snow!
Jennifer F. (author)  hammer98765 years ago
It definitely has to be the right kind of snow in order to make the snowballs :)

Simple, almost free, and totally AWESOME! I would have never thought do do this, and now I will!

Great idea, it would look wonderful if you have friends or family coming over for the day. You could light it as a symbol that you wish to light their way home. ...wow...that was deep

Awesome video! And the lantern looks really cool!

It looks really cool, but I would just use an electric lantern. It would be even cooler to use a solar powered lantern and put the solar cell on top of the snow dome. If I were to use a candle I would at least make an escape hole for the heat at the top of the dome.
