CANdle Light

On this lovely Thursday, I want to extend the life of these
aluminum cans:

They're quite blah, don't you think?

But if you take a hammer & a nail to make
a few holes all around the can...

And add in a votive candle; light it up...

TADA! Instant luminaries!

Just imagine how a bunch of these can
make your garden glow!

Have a nice day!


  1. This is lovely! I have two empty bean cans that I can put to use this weekend.

  2. Tada, indeed :).

    I've been collecting ideas for a late summer dinner I'll have in the garden and I can see the walls around my garden filled with these whimsical lights.
    Lovely! Thanks for sharing,

  3. Thank you for visiting Sachinky! Enjoy this fun craft :)

  4. Hi Teresa! A late summer dinner party sounds very magical. I wish you great weather and everything delicious! :)

  5. WOW! This is gorgeous! I need lights like that for my deck! Thanks for sharing!

  6. They cast off pretty patterns depending on the size of the hole you make. Happy you like it Paskalily!

  7. Hi! I read somewhere that if you fill the cans with water & freeze them before you poke the holes in them, they should be easier to work with & will help the cans keep their shape! Thanks again for everything! =^)
