So, on my Battlemoor prep, one of the things I had down for things that worked was these nice little battery candle tea lights.
And well they did me well, I figured why not round them up in a lantern?
This lantern from Ikea has been used in several upcycles for SCA lighting.
Being lucky enough to have an IKEA in town I made a note to snag one on our next visit.
Now one of the issues I found straight off the bat was that when one’s toddler manages to pull the handle off with ease there is a good chance it wasn’t going to last to start with.
But not wanting to give up I asked my husband to rebend them back in so that it would stay together.
With that done I had run out of time and simply packed it up to use at Battlemoor.
Going forward I do plan to paint or replace the glass with something that mimics parchment or mayhap replace with canvas.
As far as in the tent lighting I placed 3 of the LED’s on a mirror. That provided enough light to undress by but didn’t destroy my night vision.
This site gives a wonderful look at lanterns.
Read up here on candles well LEDs are useful and FAR safer it is nice to know what should be used.
