How To Make a 360 Degree Lantern

Reposted from the Wilderness Systems blog, by Joe Poole

Here is a video I made showing how to make a 360 degree lantern out of a Wyler Light drink mix can and a Mini-Maglite. It is brighter than any kayak light I have seen on the market today.

Here is the parts list.....

  • pool fun noodle tube (hole in the center)
  • Wyler's Light drink mix can
  • 2" Blind Spot Mirror (small dome mirror from auto parts store)
  • 3M 77 Spray Adhesive
  • sand paper
  • electric knife
  • empty long neck beer bottle
