Accessorizing your lantern with beautiful butterflies
Practising candle safety
Because these lanterns are made from paper, it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that they cannot be left outside. A simple solution is to display them on a metal tray. When the stars are out and you’re ready for bed, blow out the candles and carry the tray in with you. Use tea lights inside the jars and be very careful when lighting them. Never leave burning candles unattended. Battery-operated tea lights are a safe alternative.
