How to make lanterns with beer cans
- Empty beer cans
- Tea lights
- X-act knife
Have an evening planned of backyard fun with friends and have no idea how to light your terrace?
I'm going to share a great, simple and economical idea to illuminate your terrace in an original way.
Step 1: Materials to make lanterns with beer cans
To make these lanterns, you do not need to invest much; you only need empty cans of beer or soda, some candles, some string and an X-act knife
Step 2: Cut one vertical line
To start creating your lantern with beer can or can of soda, you have to cut a vertical line along the can...
Step 3: Make the same lines along the whole can
When you finish cutting the first line, you have to do several around the whole can. Do approximately 12 lines.
Step 4: Press down
When you have cut lines on the whole can, press carefully with your hand on the top of the can to flatten it a little. Do it carefully.
Step 5: Add the candle and turn them on to decorate your terrace
Light one of the tealights and slip it into the can to illuminate your space. You can hang them up by the can ring-pulls and a bit of string.
