Tin Can Luminaries

Looking to beat some of the summer heat already? 
Where we live the heat is in full effect and I am not loving it  lol

With the heat taking over, it means lots of inside afternoon activities so we can stay as cool as possible.  

Tin Can Luminaries are a fun and easy project to do on a rainy day, a hot day, or any day you feel like getting your crafting on with your kids. 

I followed the tutorial here to make these with the family. 
{ We didn't paint ours because I like the silver metal look of the cans }

After punching the holes in the tin cans you can just place them outside on a hot { or warm day } and let mother nature melt the ice for you. :)

Mine did not come out right and ended up a hot mess, so I will have to give it another try once we have a few more cans.  I need to remember simple is better when punching the holes. These are my daughter's and my husband's luminaries. 

They came out pretty cute when we placed candles in them.  
Yes we are Zelda lovers in our house. ;) 

My daughter's look so sweet in her room all aglow as she falls asleep. :)

I want to make some more of these for the house .....they are a fun eco friendly craft that you could make for different holidays or themes to pull out as some sweet handmade decor made by you and your family. 

PS Instagram photos and blogging go beautifully together and make the whole blogging experience run so much smoother, so thankful for that! :)
