Day 6: Spooky Tin Can Lantern DIY

Another item I can check off my to-try list: can lights! I made this Spooky Tin Can Lantern a couple weeks ago (for the HP Create blog) and they are the perfect decorations to line my walkway this Halloween. This is a SUPER inexpensive project to create, plus you get to eat whatever food is in the can before you make this project! Yay!

I made three patterns that can be downloaded off the original post: a ghost, kitty, and pumpkin face. You can find the complete tutorial on the HP Create blog right here.

    Love these! Tin can lanterns are always sweet, but a Halloween-themed one is ten times as wonderful. 🙂
