YOU WILL NEED
· Fabric scissors
· Old glass jars
· White fabric (optional)
· Double-sided tape
· Battery-operated tea lights, one for each lantern
1. For each lantern, cut a square of muslin big enough to cover the lid and overhang the jar. Place the muslin over the top of the lid and anchor it to the top of the lid by fixing it with a piece of double-sided tape.
2. Place the battery-operated tea light into the jar, screw on the lid so the cloth hangs down and covers the jar.
3. To make the hanging loop, cut or tear a strip of muslin measuring approximately 30 x 2cm. Loop it around the neck of the jar and secure with a slip knot. Now take the long loose end over to the opposite side of the neck of the jar so that a long loop is formed over the lid. Push the end under the fabric tied around the jar and secure with a looped slip knot. You can easily undo and redo the hanging loop when you take off the lid to turn the light on or off.
