Cut a handful of small twigs
Cut a twig with a fork in it for each lantern to create a natural hook for the twig lanterns to hang from
Make two rings from bale wire for each little lantern, each one just slightly bigger than the flameless candle.
Tie the twigs to the bottom ring with bind wire.
Move all around the wire adding twigs as you go
Wire two twigs to cross at the bottom of the lantern to create a support for the flameless candle
Tie the twigs to a second wire ring at the top
Decorate the lanterns with flowers, curly hazel twigs and accessories
Sprinkle artificial snow on the designs and hang each lantern from the twig hook
