DIY Tin Can Lanterns

Appropriate for summer late parties or pleasant dinners with friends in the backyard, tin can lanterns are really easy to make. All that you need is: recycled tin cans, nail, hammer, bailing wire, spray paint and candles. In order to not modify the shape of the tin cans when punching out the design, is preferable to fill them with water and keep them in the freezer for a time. When done, you can start applying the design, freely, or using a specific pattern or sketch, punching it with a nail. On two opposite sides, near the top, you make two holes and attach a bailing wire handle, on each can. Now is time to apply the spray paint. When coated, you insert the candles and light them up. Enjoy!
