First, you need some cotton batting, a paper lantern, and three flameless candles, the type that Glade sells. Pull at the cotton batting until it looks cloud-like. Then, hot glue it to the paper lantern in various places. Light the lights and stick them inside. Hang the lantern.I tried LED lights but they were to bright. Tap lights still put off too much heat. The flameless candles gave just the right light, were adjustable and gave off no heat. These are beautiful when done.
