Ground Candle Paper Lanterns
Not all flame-lit lanterns are able to be hanged. Some of them have legs or other types of supports and are meant to be set on the ground. These types of lanterns should only be used around small children if the children cannot reach the lanterns because of being blocked by a physical object or feature, as any small bump can easily knock the lantern over; a flame-lit lantern falling over will cause the flame to come into contact with the paper, and it will ignite the paper, causing a fire. If you cannot block the lantern from your children, and you do not have a hanging lantern, you can find “higher ground;” a ledge or other type of flat surface that is up high can function like the ground and support your ground candle lantern.
