I need to light up my streets so the citizens of my castle can get around at night. I'd like to do something like this:

(I guess in some places they call this a 'sconce')

I looked around on Bricklink and the closest I found was this lantern below. But it looks like it only attaches to a hand, so I can't put it on the wall. Any suggestions?

    Lantern use so called 3.18 mm "bar" connection, which is used by multiple of other parts than minifigure hands too. You could position it upward as well.

Tree Palm Top was used as lanterns in old pirate sets, for example 6285

1989's Eldorado Fortress from the Pirates universe had torches made from part 3959 with a single transparent stud on the "top", with the entire assembly pushed into an Erling brick.

Part 3959

You can get a similar effect by clipping a lightsaber hilt piece to the wall or putting it onto a post. Just add a suitable flame piece (or simple stud) coming out of one end. For a recent handheld version of this (could be easily adapted to a stationary lamp), see Ninjago set 70671, Lloyd's Journey.
