DIY Christmas Luminaries (from a Can)

Sparkly & cute luminaries from a can.
To make these, you will need:
– clean, empty cans
– silver and gold spray paint
– screwdriver/awl
– mallet/hammer
– candles / fake candles
You might need :
– snow spray
– gloves
– painter mask
– paper towels
– decorative ribbon
1- Use sharpie to draw christmas image of your choice on a can
2- Fill empty can with water and freeze overnight.
3- Use awl (or screwdriver) and mallet (or a small hammer) to punch holes along marked line. Make holes around half cm (0.19 inches) apart.
4- Melt the ice.
5-Remove rest of the ice (if any) and wipe cans clean.
6-Start spraying !
I used golden spray to paint bigger can and silver spray to paint the small one.
I also used bit of snow spray to give silver can more frosty look.
8- Decorate (optional):
I attached decorative ribbon to the silver can, just to add a bit of contrast.
9- Put candle or fake candle inside the can and that’s it!

Happy Christmas Crafting :)
