Pumpkin Lanterns A Cute Alternative to Carving Pumpkins

Materials Need:
Tin Can
Hammer And Nail (or Drill with Drill Bit)
Acrylic Paint: Orange and Black
18 - 20 Gauge Wire
Votive Candle or Electric Candle

Simply paint the tin can and then trace the desire face onto it. Then, begin drilling or hammering your holes for the light to come through. You could get creative and paint one black to create a skeleton image or even green to create a Frankenstien image.






I found this fun idea here:

  1. Hi Bren, How cute!!! I just bought ten shepherd's hooks to line my driveway. These would be perfect to hang there. I see that you are from my neck of the woods. I am participating as a vendor next Thursday the 4th at Receptions on Glenway Ave. I think there will be all sorts of vendors there. I am doing some folk art and holiday things. Stop by and say hi if you are free. I love to meet local blogger's. If not then some other time!
