DIY Outdoor Camping Lantern Tutorial

To survive at night in a camp while you are at outdoors, lighting is essential .It enables you to see as well as keep harmful animals away from you. Additionally, it provide you heat and hope to overcome your fear. Lantern is a portable source of lighting, typically featuring a protective enclosure for the light source — historically usually a candle or a wick in oil, and often a battery-powered light in modern times — to make it easier to carry and hang up.
