Next you need a toilet paper roll. Once you have that you need to take the light bulb and socket and tape it to the inside of the toilet paper tube.

Lastly you need to find a thick piece of cardboard for the base. Once you found that place the tube into the torch make sure it fits properly and then you can tape the bottom and the top. I glued mine to the cardboard to help it stand. ( you do not have to use he cardboard base)

thanks for the idea! I wrapped the template around a toilet paper holder and used a battery operated tea light! this was a nice touch for my grandson's Minecraft themed party.

actually its best to use a non heat emitting light source. you dont want your minecraft torch to become a true torch
