Tin Can Lanterns

You will need:

  • Clean tin can
  • Hammer
  • Nail/screw
  • Tea light or small candle
  • Towel (to stop the tin can from moving when piercing)

To make:

Soak the paper off of the tin can with soapy water and dry.

Place the can on a towel to ensure it’s steady and doesn’t move around whilst piercing. Using a nail, screw, or anything with a sharp point and a hammer, carefully pierce holes into the tin can in a variety of patterns.  You can use your imagination or find patterns online. Place a tea light inside the finished tin.
