If you’re looking for an easy and affordable way to decorate your home for Halloween, make these luminaries using tin cans! Place them along your walkway or front steps to light the way on Halloween. So cute and charming!
Fill the tin can with water and place it in the freezer. When the water in the can is frozen, remove the can from the freezer.
Using the marker, draw whatever image or word onto the tin can. You can freehand or print a design from the internet and then trace it onto the tin can. Keep the design simple though. Design Ideas: outline of a cat, a bat, a witch’s hat, words like Boo or Happy Halloween.
Also, since water expands as it freezes, the bottom of your can will probably not be level. If not, then turn the can over, cover with a towel, and hammer down the edges until the bottom of the can is level.
Paint the tin can using either spray paint or acrylic paint. Once the the paint is dry, you’ll probably have to go back with a toothpick and poke some of the holes through on the can since the paint can clog them up.
