The EASIEST DIY Tin Lantern

Tin lanterns are not only extremely easy and kid friendly, but you can make them under $5. Better yet, you can make them with items from around the house! These work great as garden decor, centerpieces and gifts! Take a look at this quick tutorial to see how you can add a little light to your life:

Gather your supplies! These tin lanterns can easily be made with items around the house, although it isn’t all that expensive either:

  • Hammer
  • Towel
  • Marker
  • Nail or screw
  • Tin can or tin bucket
  • Candle or LED light
  • Water

Many folks reuse their soup cans for this project, but we decided to use some inexpensive tin buckets from the dollar section at Target! Whichever you decide, fill with water and freeze. Freezing is essential! The ice helps  tremendously when trying to poke your holes later.
