Aluminum can lantern

Making lanterns from aluminum cans.

With a felt-tip pen, draw a shape of an unside-down tulip on the can. Then, cut it out along the shape with a cutting knife.

Use work globes for safety.

1. Fold the M-shaped part inwards.
2. Cut a piece of tissue paper to 5cm wide to make a candlewick with a diameter of 6mm.
3. Wrap aluminum foil around the tissue-paper stick twice, then the candlewick is done.
4. Fix the candlewick between the M-shaped part of a can.
5. Pour cooking oil into the can to a depth of 2cm.
6. When the oil reachs to the top of the paper candlewick, lit the candle.
7. With metal wires attached, the lanterns will be portable.
