Tin Can Lantern: Published in All You Magazine

I’ve been asked a few times about the pretty tin can lantern I made last month that was published in All You Magazine. You can see it HERE. The Senior Style editor of the magazine contacted me and asked if I would be up for a crafting challenge. That’s my kind of thing! It had to be a craft made out of a tin can and cost under $5. They then had my lil crafty craft shipped off to New York for the magazine photo shoot. SO fun! I figured that it would be a neat idea to explain how I made it and what in spired me.

  1. I am very confused. You said to follow the directions for the tealights. So you only glue spoons to the top of the can do go all around the top right?
    Then you just add the petals around to bottom of can or do you add more spoons covered in rose petals? It’s probably very easy but if I can’t picture it I can’t make it.
    Please help!!! I love your ideas.

    1. First glue the petals to the spoons. Then, starting at the top of the can, glue the spoons around. Keep going around and around until you reach the bottom of the can. If any of the can is showing, you can glue on extra rose petals (without spoons) to cover it up.I hope that helps! Let me know if you have questions:)

  2. HELLO HEATHER, YOUR TIN CAN LANTERN IS AMAZING . I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS LATERN CAN BE MADE WITHOUT THE PLASTIC SPOONS, WHAT SIZE CAN IS USED AND IF A CANDLE CAN BE PUT IN IT FOR OUTSIDE USE. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP.
