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!

Got a question about this project?
