Tin Can Tea Light Holders

I love this idea!  So simple and so beautiful!  I love the fact that you can use recycled cans.  This is a really inexpensive way to make a really pretty feature.  If you have a covered deck, it would be lovely for your summer party outside.

Materials Needed:

- tin cans
- pretty paper
- wooden hanger
- wooden pegs
- glue
- string or raffia
- scissors
- ruler
- tea lights

Take your well-cleaned tins and measure carefully the height of the tin.  Cut strips of paper and you can trim off the length so that the paper matches neatly.

Glue your paper strips to the tins and tie on your string or raffia.  Also glue this in place so that it cannot slip.  This not only looks pretty but will keep things in place whilst the glue dries.

From the string, you can now add more lengths of string so that you can attach this to your hanger.  Tie them on as well as peg them, again for safety.  If you feel so inclined you could also decorate your wooden pegs with the same paper so they match up or you could simply leave them natural.

Now you're read with your ambiant lighting for your summer party!  Have fun!
