Introduction: Tin Can Lanterns
Easy to make and beautiful!
-Tin can (I used a corn can)
-Hammer or drill
- If using the hammer method then you need nails
-Tea light candles
Step 1: Painting
For this step all you need to do is paint a thin layer onto the can.
Step 2: Design
Take an ink pen or light colored marker and dot where you want the holes to go.
Step 3: Tapping
Place the nail on a dot you've made and tap on it with the hammer
Step 4: Repainting
After all the tapping the paint would most likely be chipped, so repaint a coat on the can.
Step 5: Finished
Put the tea light in the can and enjoy
I didn't finish mine, just showing what it would look like after making some holes.

You could also make couple of holes on each side, and thread a wire through it, hang in it trees. That should make beautiful spring and summer nights. Great idea!
