And I am getting stoked about decorating for it! I've been a little slack on progress towards decorating, aside from all the pumpkins I got for the house, but it's comin' along ;)
I followed a tutorial here to make Tin Can Lanterns. Here is my rendition of tin can lanterns for Halloween. I actually made it last year, but never got them up in a post! Of course, this craft can be applied to any time of year! :
|(You can tell this picture was taken last year because the paper this lantern is sitting on was the rough draft of our wedding invitations!)|
Some pointers I learned while making this are:
- Make sure you do this on ground that you don't mind ice melting on!
- It's tough to keep the can still while you hammer the nails through it.
- I actually ended up using a screw driver to make the nails - this was easier for me.
I hope you're enjoying this wonderful October month! Halloween is right around the corner!
