Also need candles, for a large lamp suitable candle in glass, for the little it is better to use led candles, they are safer.

We did square lamps, the size of the side face 10×10 cm 18×18 cm, but you can play with sizes and shapes, to make a more elongated or wide.

For the little lamp cut out 4 strips of paper 10×20 cm Paper can I iron iron to make it easier to work with.
