Tap-light luminarias

Thomas J. Tap-light luminarias
Add a welcoming glow to pathways and entries with easy lanterns you can make yourself

Put your own spin on the classic luminaria using battery-run tap lights.

These simple fixtures ― flat, battery-operated lights that turn on when tapped on top ― are sold in packages of six for about $20 at hardware stores and general merchandise stores.

Add your own embellishment by wrapping a piece of translucent rice paper around the base and taping the ends of the paper together with double-sided tape to form a cylinder.

Design: Dennis W. Leong
