Default Vegetable Oil Lanterns

Many of you may already know that you can make lanterns from vegetable oil but in case you didn't here are my results. A very bad storm blew up in our area August 8th and left us without power for 72 hours. Our area is pretty secluded so we will never know if we had a tornado or not but the damage on our homestead is significant. You can see the video on our website Savvy Practicality.

I've attached a picture but its been so long since I've done that I am not sure its going to work. My lantern was made from a Pyrex measuring cup a dish towel and an 8-inch piece of copper wire. These lanterns really saved us. I will do an updated tutorial soon and post it here.
