Before I start the tutorial I want to thank Craftgossip.com for featuring my watermelon ship.. Thank you very much!!!!
Let's start with today's tutorial ...It requires very simple ..easy to find at home stuff..
A pretty tissue paper with patterns big enough to be easily cut ... An empty glass bottle...Scissors ..Glue..and a cord..( I used the cord that comes with toy packaging)
Then cut the border or flowers on the tissue paper..
Cut the paper as per the circumference of the bottle and then glue it to bottle...
Turn and twist the cord to make a knot ..
Tie the cord around the bottle's neck and make a very tight knot and pull it across to check if it is tight enough to hold the bottle..
Put either a battery charged candle or wax one or scented candle..
Viola!!! Your hurricane lamp is ready!!
Hang it anywhere on tree branches for a summer outdoor entertaining or place it outside on your stairs .. or hang it on the bathroom towel hook like I have done..or place on the center table for a romantic ambiance..
It is perfect for festivals like Diwali or Christmas ...
Try it out its very easy to make and practical plus decorative to use..Do read the warning and remember them while using wax candles ...
Warning: Do not keep candles unattended. Glass becomes hot after keeping the candle burning in it for long time.
