Learn how to make bag lanterns

Bag lanterns mark special occasions and are very easy and quick to assemble. To make your event very special scatter these paper bag lanterns all over your garden or line pathways with their welcoming lights.
You will need a couple of plain paper bags, a bucket of sand and some tiny candles. Fill the bags with three handfuls of sand and flatten it in the bottom. Now push your candle into the sand making sure it is at even distances from the sides. Place your bag where you want it and simply light the candle. Should you desire something more decorative, cut some patterns into the bags or paint them with water paint to create interesting shadows.
