Craft a torch for St. Martin's Day with the Sticklight

St. Martin's is the festival of lights and what better way to celebrate it than with a homemade torch? With some tissue paper, a piece of string and a plastic A4 sheet, you'll have an atmospheric torch for the lantern parade in no time. 


  • Fluorescent paper in the colors yellow, orange and red 
  • Plastic sheet A4 size 
  • Piece of string 
  • Adhesive tape 
  • Pritt pen 
  • Scissors 
  • Sticklight


1. Cut the corners of the plastic A4 sheet as shown. You can use half of a plastic A4 sheet instead of a plastic slipcase. 

2. Cut flames from the colored paper in the different sizes as shown in the picture. 

3. Stick the paper onto the A4 plastic sheet with the glue stick, starting with the yellow flames. Follow the order as shown in the picture. 

4. Wrap the paper like a funnel around the Sticklight and tape the ends to hold it in place. 

5. Wrap and tie string around the Sticklight and a piece of the paper flame to keep the flames from sliding down.

With the Sticklight, a contemporary interpretation of the classic torch, designer Thor ter Kulve aims to make the world more playful and adventurous. The Sticklight is more than a portable light source: by sticking the Sticklight into the ground with the pin at the bottom, you claim a place as your own. Just like the flag on the moon: here I am, this is my spot for now. Whether in your own garden, on the beach or in the park, by poking the Sticklight into the ground, you create a place that’s all yours for a while. A foot holder and wall holder are available separately. With its functional and minimalist design, the Sticklight effortlessly connects outdoors with indoors and fits into any environment. The three different light modes, ranging from functional light to mood light, allow you to determine the atmosphere. Depending on the light intensity, the Sticklight lasts 7-100 hours on a fully charged battery. The Sticklight is made of lightweight aluminum and powder coated, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The Sticklight is available in Bottle Green and Oxide Red.

The multifunctional and rechargeable Guidelight, designed by Floris Schoonderbeek, provides more than just light. It is a romantic mood light, adventurous flashlight and focus spotlight all in one. Take the Guidelight to the campsite, for example. Turn on the Guidelight, grab a handful of nuts and pour a glass of wine: your evening outside can go on for a while. The light source of the Guidelight can easily be infinitely dimmed. A fully charged Guidelight equals 5-100 hours of use, depending on the light intensity. Combine the durable designer lamp with our Hook Set to hang the Guidelight on the wall, ceiling or on a tree branch. The Guidelight has an LED bulb with a lifespan of approximately 50,000 hours. The battery is charged via a USB-C port (cable excluded). The lamp is also suitable for outdoor use and is dripping waterproof. Where will the Guidelight take you?
