Picture of Soup-Can Lantern
For this project you will need:
  • 1 Pillar candle- fit to your can
  • 1 empty 26 fl. oz. family sized soup can
  • About 1 1/2 feet of beading wire 
  • Hand drill
  • A great pair of scissors or pliers
You can use a smaller can and substitute a tea light candle for the pillar candle!

Step 1: Step 1

After emptying the contents of your soup can, you will use the hand drill to make holes in the can so light can not only escape out the top of the can but also the sides. I drilled mine sporadically around the top 1 1/2 or 2 inches of the can but you can be creative with that part!

*Just make sure to only drill above where your candle will be.
