Upcycle your Tin Cans to make these DIY Tin Can Lanterns. Check out the easy tutorial!
- Tin Can
1. Sheet of Paper
Take a paper and wrap it around the tin can.
2. Marked on sheet
Mark the extra sheet of paper from the bottom of the can.
3. Cut Extra Part
Cut the marked area of the paper using a pair of scissors.
4. Make Dots
Make a star design using the dot drawing technique.
5. Glue Sheet
Stick the designed sheet to the can using tape or glue gun.
6. Make holes
Using a hammer and a nail, hammer the nails through the dots. Be careful while hammering the nails!
NOTE: Freeze water in the can before hammering to make it easy to hammer nails through the can!
7. Spray Paint
Either stop at the previous step or you can proceed by painting the can to give it a shining look. Use weather proof paint if you are planning to hang it outside.
8. Making Wire Handle
Hammer two holes at the top of the can and use wires to make a handle for your lantern. Bend the outer ends of the wires.
Put a flameless votive inside the can to complete the project!
Enjoy the beauty of your can lantern and hang it somewhere in your home or in the garden.
