Here’s the first one, in conjunction with Erewash Borough Council,  a little seasonal lantern making.

You will need a cleaned jar, a 30cm cable tie, 40cm garden/twist tie, peel off stickers, permanent marker pens.


    1. The twist tie handle – fold each end under cable tie, and wrap ends around the twist tie
    2. Attach cable tie to neck of jar, pull it tight – tug hard on handle before cutting spare cable tie off
    3. Use peel off stickers to decorate jar
    4. Colour jar brightly with marker pens
    5. Pop a battery tea-light or fairy lights inside to make your lantern shine bright!
