Tin Can Welcome Lights

12,164 Views
I saw a posting on here about different outdoor lighting ideas a couple weeks ago and after following the link I found how to make pretty candleholders out of old tin cans. I decided to make a 'welcome' sign out of them instead of a design or picture on the cans. It was so fast and easy to do!

    So pretty Jeanine. Do you freeze water inside the cleaned out cans and then use nails to hammer in the design?

    Hi Becky! Yep you got it. The website said to fill it up with rice or sand partway before putting in the water so the bottom of the cans don't pop out. I didn't really understand how this would happen, but I did it anyways lol... Super quick to make!

    Oh that's a great idea! I'll have to remember that if I ever get time to do this. I've always wanted to.

    Love the way you adapted that idea to make it your own.
