Halloween is right around the corner, each day getting a little bit spookier. ?One of my favorite parts about Halloween are the Jack-o-Lanterns, all lit up. ?I love anything luminescent reallybaby pillow, so I thought I would try making some tin can luminaries.

I know the thought of puncturing a hole into metal can be scary but don't be intimidated, these were actually very easy!

Spooky right? ?And so many possibilities! ?I definitely see more tin can luminaries in the future.

Want to make them? ?Here's how:


Step 1: ?Clean up your can. ?Peel off the label and wash it out well. ?Then fill it almost to the top with water. ?Freeze it overnight. ?The ice that forms will make hammering holes in the can VERY easy.

Step 2: ?Draw your Jack-o-Lantern face on the can with a Sharpie. ?Then use the awl and rubber mallet to pound small holes along the lines of your design. ?It goes through very easily. ?Don't pound too hard or the holes will get too big. ?I found that only a couple quick taps were all I needed.

Step 3: ?Flush out the ice with hot water, dry. ?Then spray paint the outside of the can with your black spray paint.

Step 4: ?Carefully paint the inside of the eyes, nose, and mouth with the gold paint, making clean lines along where the holes are.

Step 5: ?Light your votive candles and turn off the lights!

Have a Happy Halloween!

For the knitting newbie, there is something magical about how those needles go flying through the string and somehow make amazing patterns which in turn create whole garments. It’s sheer genius! Knitting is not as hard as it looks and with a bit of practice, you could get just as good. And you won’t even be taking half the time to get it all done.
