Dia De Muertos Luminaries

Say "adios" to plastic Halloween decorations and create these recycled tin can luminaries! Here's how to add a little spooky style to your front porch or entrance.
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $0-10 Difficulty: Medium
Take a large or medium-sized tin can and tape the skull template (available on flourishandknot.com) to it.
For more details on how to create this spooky Halloween craft, please check out the full tutorial on the blog.
Add a few tea lights to your luminary and enjoy the stylishly spooky addition to your entrance! Be sure to check out my blog for more DIY projects and ideas! Flourish & Knot runs the gamut of make-it-yourself: crafts, recipes, home improvement, decorating, sewing, gardening, floral arranging, and entertaining. If I can do it myself, it’s fair game!

    If you fill with water & freeze it's a whole lot easier to punch the holes. I've been making tin can lanterns for years....Just made a bunch (30) for my daughter's wedding

    Use a drill bit instead of punching holes, so much easier!
