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 :)
