Very effective!   I'm guessing you could punch holes near the top each side and use wire as a handle for hanging them.    Be great with citronella candles for the garden in the summer.

Lanterns

Yes, you can hang them up like lanterns using wire. Hadn't made one of these for years! Brownies, Guides & youth club came in handy after all!
