A while ago we spent an evening making some tin punched lanterns which harked back to my Girl Guide days.
First you take an empty, washed food can and fill it with water. Place this in the freezer to set, this makes it easier to punch the aluminium.
Once frozen, using a nail and a small hammer, punch some holes, we made some starry night and hearts designs and then left the can out for the ice to melt.
Tip the ice/water out, add a small candle and a wire handle and there you have it.
A fun craft to do with your kids too! Have fun!
(Please make sure you never leave a burning candle unattended and don’t forget the metal/wire handle may become hot to the touch from the heat of the candle!)
