What you'll need:
- various sized pretty glass containers (they will serve as the case of the lanterns so make sure to get some with a lip at the top or something that will be easy to string twine around , a mason jar for example)
- tea candles
- twine or string
- pebbles or shells
- craft beer (we chose some Lagunitas :3 )
So here's what you're gonna be using! The first thing to do is choose a glass container and put the tea candle inside, I recommend using some wall putty (like the weird stuff you used to stick glow-in-the-dark stars to your ceiling when you were a kid)to keep the candle stuck in place inside the jar. Then you should fill it with however much of whatever you want until it looks nice. I used little filler pebbles and then some shell fragments that I collected at the beach on Friday.

Then use your twine to wrap the top of the jar and create a hanger of sorts so you can hang your lantern! Or, if you choose to use a larger mason jar, or even a vase, try using a taller candle and more pebbles and use it as a table light.
Now light them up and do something nice outside in the candlelight!
