How to make a tin can lantern?


You need:

  • A tin can of any size
  • Hammer
  • Nails


Method:

  • Clean the outer sticker, if any, by soaking it in soap water and scrubbing it out neatly.
  • Fill the can with water till the top and keep it in the freezer overnight. (Leaving it longer might change the shape of the can)
  • Once the water turns to ice, keep the tin can on a thick towel in a horizontal position.
  • Start hammering small holes on the surface of the can in any design you wish to make.
  • If you want to make shapes like circle/heart/stars, draw it with a marker before freezing the can. Once the holes are done, leave the can out in the sun and let the ice melt.
  • Wipe the can dry with a cloth and paint it using fabric or oil colours.
  • Put a wire as handle, burn a diya/tealight inside the can and enjoy the beautiful lantern.
