The snow lantern or snölykta was made the day after a storm which left us about five inches of wet snow. The next day,  being sunny and in the upper thirties, was perfect for making snowballs.

The first night was a little too windy so the candles kept going out. The following day  I placed two tall candles in the igloo and lit them in the evening just as the sun was going down and it stayed alight well into the early morning hours.

How to make a snölykta

 

New Hampshire in the winter after a snow storm. Heavy wet snow and an overcast sky make for a chilly, contrasting image.

This snow sticks to everything it touches, making space appear more ‘closed in’ and the air so very quiet, kind of like what fog does.
