Turn a Flashlight Into a Lantern Using a Balloon

About: I have always loved building and modifying things. Some of my modifications have worked out very well for me so i figured i would share them. I look forward to being part of the Instructables community.

Intro: Turn a Flashlight Into a Lantern Using a Balloon

This is a very simple idea I came up with that allows you to turn a flashlight like my beloved Streamlight Stylus pro into a Lantern using a basic white birthday balloon. The video embedded will tell you everything you need to know.

    I have now used this technique for two camping trips and it works very nicely. Much better than the cheap little coleman lantern I have in my camping bin.

    Great idea! Looks like a perfect way to turn my backpacking flashlight into a lantern with zero weight.
