How to Build a Snölykta, a Traditional Swedish Snow Lantern

Kirstin Fawcett

This winter, consider building a snölykta in the front yard instead of a snowman. The traditional Swedish lanterns are made from dozens of individual snowballs, piled into a hollow pyramid. Stick some LED lights inside before sealing the top, and enjoy the cozy glow from the comfort of your warm home (preferably while sipping a mug of hot chocolate).

Learn how to make your own snölykta by watching the timelapse video above, created by Daniel Troger.
