Preparing for the Lantern Festival

A few clean dry jars with lids
Some wire for the handles
White glue mixture with equal parts glue and water
Tissue paper, we made them into strips but anything goes of course
Sticks for hanging the handals on
And a drill for drilling holes into the lid. Plenty of holes means more air gets to the fire. We also used the holes for attaching the wire handles. Finally, we drilled a hole in each stick to poke through some twist tie type wire which ultimately goes around the lantern handle.
