We’ve just told you about bug repellent candles for you to spend time outdoors with pleasure, and today we continue the bug-protection topic with tiki torches and bug repellent lanterns that will not only protect you from insects but also will add a cozy touch to your outdoor décor. Lanterns are mostly made of mason jars with citronella oil added to the fuel. The best idea to make a tiki torch is to use a wine bottle with the same filling as the mason jar. You can paint the bottle, decorate it with lace or burlap, or just take an antique one – that will add to your outside décor. Read the tutorials below and choose something for your patio or garden!
