Creative Ideas - DIY Cute Tin Can Lanterns

It’s awesome to recycle the everyday items around your household that you are going to discard, and turn them into something useful. I am excited to feature a creative idea by Elise Engh. In her blog Grow Creative, she made some cute lanterns from recycled tin cans. The best part of it is that you can create any patterns you like with the nail holes, such as a heart shape, flowers, animals, letters and so on. Place tealight candles to light them up. When the light goes through the handmade holes on the tin cans, it creates a faintly shimmering and beautiful effect. These tin can lanterns will make unique decors for your garden! Thanks Elise for the wonderful project!
