The magical light of the lanterns
Bring your favorite motif on the homemade lantern
Leave two holes left to hang
You would certainly make a note of "buying lighthouses", but we'll suggest some crafting ideas on how to easily and even for free charge romantic lanterns out of very simple tin cans. Crafting is fun and all people feel pride after creating something of their own. Let's add that the sustainable way of life and upcycling belong to a very sensible and future-oriented trend that convinces and inspires more and more people.
A row of lanterns is welcome at every garden party
To make beautiful and above all very romantic lanterns from tin cans, you need any number of tin cans, a hammer, a large nail, acrylic paint for brushing or as a spray can, wire and suitable adhesive. As for the DIY ideas, we have taken some work from you and added inspiring suggestions. Make your own lantern and use the motifs that appeal to you the most. Start with something simple, like a circle or a sun.
Decorate the garden path with lanterns
First wash the cans and dry them well. Then you draw with an Edding pen the motive, what you have decided. With the hammer and the nail, carefully punch along the drawn contours.
The holes drawn motifs cast mystical shadows when you light a tealight
At the top edge, you can leave room for two opposite holes, which you will later need to hang using the wire.
Now light the tealights and place them in the lanterns!
