DIY Cast Iron Tabletop Lantern

cast iron garlic roaster*
four flameless battery-operated votive candles
or string of battery-operated fairy lights

With the simple addition of four battery-operated flameless
votive candles or a string of battery-operated fairy lights,
this humble cast iron garlic roaster transforms into a subtle
point of light in your home. Perfect for the center of
your holiday table or to add warm glow to a dim corner.
Shine on.

*We bought a new garlic roaster for this project and recommend you do the same.
Do not reuse for food purposes after completion of this project. Because the lantern is in two pieces, it is unsuitable for hanging. For tabletop use only.
