How to make tin can Luminarias

This is so easy- Take an ordinary tin can (this one was stewed tomatoes),Clean it, draw a design on it, punch holes for the design, or use a drill with a small bit (a nail and hammer works as well-find a small log or something round to put the can on so you have a hard substance to pound on) Or fill can with water and put in freezer for a day or so so you will have a hard substance to make holes in can- the can will then not collapse!)

Add a tea light, turn out the lights and you have a luminaria made from a tin can!

This is great for lighting the walkway or patio. Or try making some for Halloween or Christmas!
