Deck and Outdoor Living Tuna Can Lantern

Backyard Escapes 13 hours ago
Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00

    Great idea - an indoor/outdoor "flameless candle" would look nice too, I think.

    So interesting--my friend made these 30 years ago for her daughters wedding reception. They really are pretty and for Christmas, greenery can be tucked in around the glass chimney. What goes around, comes around!
