Ways to reuse... soup cans!

How to turn a soup can into a candle holder.

First, use any size tin can.
Eat contents.

Peel off the label and rinse out the can.

Fill can with water and freeze for at least 8 hours.
Draw on a design.
Use a nail and hammer to punch holes around the design.

Paint the can and allow it to dry completely.
(Optional) Once dried tape off a section in the middle.

Paint the middle a different color.
Allow the paint to fully dry.

Once the paint is fully dry carefully peel off the tape.

Add a candle, and ta-da! A beautiful outdoor candle.
(You can add sand to the bottom to weigh the can down.)
