Tin Can Lantern
Tin cans (soup cans or other)

Apply a coat of paint and let it dry.
Fill the can with water and place in a freezer until solid.(this will ensure you don't dent the tin.)
Use a hammer and nail to punch out holes, creating a freehand design around the can.
For a handle, punch out two holes on either side of can.
Using a pair of pliers, bend wire through holes and secure.
Place a candle in side and hang in a safe place.
