DIY: Tin Can Lantern tutorial, We didn't do a pattern just made the nail holes. I was surprised at how well my 6 yr old granddaughter did with a hammer. We used one of those little battery light inside it.
I love this idea - and I have a big bite that could easily do this. Tin Can Lanterns for table centerpieces. Cheap, recycled, and easy enough to make. Throw a little heat-proof spray paint and ribbons on them to add a little color.
