I flipped the lanterns over and removed the metal thingy where your candle is intended to be inserted.
This left me a nice hole to place onto my light bulbs.
Next, I took two pieces of steel wire…
…and looped them through the holes in my light fixture and some holes in the lantern.
I used my jewelry making pliers to twist the wire in place and cut the loose ends.
To disguise the color of the wire, I used some Rub ‘n Buff in Spanish Copper. (Rub ‘n Buff gave me a bunch of their product to try out awhile back, and I can’t tell you how handy this stuff is to have on hand!)
And that was it! Will it be a total pain in the butt to change a lightbulb now? Why yes. Yes it will. But when you diy things sometimes you have to be willing to put up with some minor inconvenience! I was smart enough to change all the light bulbs before wiring on my lanterns :).
