This was a very easy project. Total cost 8 dollars. I got the lantern free from my brother.
I bought a snap in light/cord from Home Depot and the light bulb there too. It is brown, but just like the white cords that pop into the little Christmas village houses.
I removed the wick assembly part and snapped in the light bulb cord. Replaced the glass shade and plugged it in. Now I just need a timer so it can turn off and on by itself!
