Introduction: Easy Night Light

Aluminum cans hold a special place in our lives. Many of our favorite beverages are found beneath the pull tab or screw top. These cans are widely used for containing deodorants,insecticides etc. Aluminum cans are true "closed loop" recyclable objects. As I wanted to make something for my hostel room that can be beautiful and economical. I ended up with this cool easy night light.

Step 1: PREREQUISITE

  • An Empty Aluminum Can
  • Sharp cutting knife
  • A pointed nail (or any pointed object)

Step 2: MAKE YOUR DESIGN

Make your dotted design on the can using any pointed object. Here I used a pointed nail. Puncture the pressurized can in open space. Use pointed object carefully as it may harm you if it slips. You can pierce random dots or any shape as you like.

Step 3: CUT THE BOTTOM

Cut the bottom of can carefully using sharp knife or blade. Try not to bend the can inwards,if it happens use your hands to undo it. Make sure the can doesn't have any dents.

Step 4: PLACE IT ON LIGHT HOLDER

Place the can on light holder. Turn on the light and it will surely change your ambiance.If you like this please vote. All suggestions and questions are Welcome.

    This looks really nice. I like the fact that you can change the projected image and the brightness just by changing the hole pattern and density.
