Remove the labels and sticky residue from your tin cans
The slices should be 3/4" apart from each other
Grab your thick metal wire and make a nice arc around the top of the can to make a handle
Drill two holes at the top of the can directly across from one another that are large enough for the wire
Feed one end of the wire through one of the holes
Use your wire cutters or pliers to curve the wire around the edge of the can so it secures the handle in place
It's better to use gloves to avoid cuts
If you want to add a little extra character to your lanterns, spray paint them the color of your choice
LED lights are great because they're waterproof and much safer than regular wax candles
Look at all those designs cast on the wall! The possibilities are endless!
Are you ready? Let's get started!
Make sure your tuna cans are empty and clean
Add glue until the entire strip is glued to the can
Cut different lengths of twine to hang the cans
Make sure the bow is tied tight
Cut an inch and a half to 2" or so. These to add an extra little touch to the cans
Glue the end of the twine string to the can
Use electrical lights to avoid wax dripping
Now go ahead and make some more!
Instead of just buying a nightlight for the wall or desk, make a light up rug!
Start with crocheting a circle. If the circle itself isn't secure, make a few stitches to keep it together
Crochet at least 3 rows of your rug before adding the rope light
This part goes much faster than you would think because the rope is thick
Place your rug close to an outlet in your children's room and plug it in!
