Tin Can Lantern.

Since moving in with the boyfriend, I have been browsing the internet trying to find creative and inexpensive ideas to add some character around the apartment. These adorable tin can lanterns from Grow Creative are perfect for impressing your guests and illuminating your outdoor space. The best part of this DIY is that you don't need a lot to make them!

What You Need

  • recycled tin cans 
  • hammer 
  • nail 
  • bailing wire 
  • pliers 
  • spray paint 
  • tea light candle

 For instructions, jump over to Grow Creative's tutorial here

Have you ever tried to make your own tin can lanterns before? As soon as I have some spare tin cans (I guess that means I have to do some cooking!), I plan to try this DIY and put a few out on the patio! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
