You need glass jars, black heavy weight paper, tissue paper in different colors, sequins, scissors, pencil, and glue. You also need tea lights.

1 Start by cutting the paper. The hight of the paper should be as high as the jar is.

5 Our first lantern is done! Make sure the paper isn’t higher than the jar. The jars can become very hot once the tea lights are lit.
