Pretty simple instructable really but the end result looks great and now I never have to fill it up with paraffin to keep it going!
Step 1: Parts and Tools
You will need the following parts to make your Electric Lantern:
1) Paraffin Lantern
this can be any old lamp as long as it is big enough to hold a globe.
2) The light socket and power cord from an electric lamp.
I used a lamp with an on/off swich attached to the cord for easy access.
3) Plastic cable ties
I used the following tools but just use whatever you have that will do the job
2) Needle nose pliers
4) Stanley knife
5) Hot glue gun
Step 2: Pulling Apart Your Electric Lamp
Or - you can always just smash it out!
The first lamp that I pulled apart had a really large light socket which didn't fit into the parrafin lamp. I was lucky enough to have another old one sitting around so I used the light socket from this one and the power cord from the other.
