You can make your own lantern by placing your items together to form the core, then slowly melting and pouring in your candle wax. You can then put the candle wax into the hollowed out center of the candle. Fill up the rest of the container with water and heat the contents of the container. This is done until the candle wax melts.
Once the wax has melted make sure that you place it into the burner of your burner to heat the flame until it has reached a hot enough temperature to begin burning the wax. Once this has been done to place the candle over the flames, but do not stick it in, as it may not ignite.
Ensure that the timer ignition mechanism is working well and start your lantern off in a steady manner. Allow it to warm up, and then light the flame by holding the switch up to the side of the lantern and taking the lead to the end of the torch, using your thumb and finger to connect the lead and torch.

The time it takes for the lantern to cool down should be quite short. While the lantern is heating up, you may be able to slowly change the direction you want the flame to come from by drawing the flame across your body.
When the candle has burned itself out, simply take the lead from the lantern and place it back in the base. Start the lantern again by gently unplugging the wires and walking away slowly, while pushing in the connector with your thumb and forefinger.
