The budget friendly luminaries can be used as votives, table numbers or signs and add a little sparkle to your table scapes and walkways.

- Tin cans of varying sizes
- Spray paint in your choice of colour (we used Krylon’s quick dry spray paint in Pistachio and Ivory)
- A large, sturdy nail
- A hammer
- Tealight candles
- A Lighter
How to make it
Step 1: After cleaning your cans of any excess labelling or glue, spray evenly with the spray paint. Let stand for about 15 minutes or until dry.
Step 2: Draw out a pattern on your can using a pencil. Holding the nail firmly in place above the pattern, begin to punch holes into the can using the hammer and nail.
Step 3: Light a tealight candle and gently place in the centre of your luminary.
Step 4: Line walkways, aisles and tables as you see fit!
