Tuna Can Outdoor Candle Lantern

Turn a simple tuna can into a candle chandelier.
When it is hot outside, where ever you live, either a house or an apartment, you tend to spend more time outside in the garden or a balcony. It is so unwinding and gives you a feeling you are in your private holiday inn. It is good to arrange those places in a kind of ambient style, though. After I showed you Cake Pan Garden Stepping Stones project, I would like to focus on the most important element of the perfect garden mood.

Tuna Can Outdoor Candle Lantern as shown here with all details by Diane, would make this ambient mood in your gardens for sure. It is not only easy to make but also very eye-catching. It must be such fun to undertake this project and then look at your creation each evening with some Frozen Fruit Popsicles in your hand.

As it involves fire, I don't recommend it for a balcony, unless you don't have it really wide. Anyway, It would be nice to know you liked this idea and used it in your leisure spot. That it actually works, and looks professional, although it is totally handmade.

Have fun and waiting for your lantern's pictures on [email protected]
