Hello,

I have attached three of my first DIY projects where I am attempting to create a cool Tea Light Lantern. Check out the video links above and let me know what you think or if you have any ideas you would like me to try out.

I like that. The can w/window seemed to work really good and it's sure lightweight.

Great video too, showed the light very well.

Franco, you said you made a newer version with a different bottle, how'd that work out?

It is pretty much the same style just shorter .
As long as the water level is as high as the flame it will not melt.


The longer one has an opaque insert,(for diffusion), , the shorter one is clear plastic , works better this way (brighter)

The shorter one may appear to be wider but it is an optical illusion.
