Trick-or-Treaters…we’re ready for ya!
I saw these tin can luminaries from Kelly from Sewing In No Mans Land and thought these were a perfect way to welcome Trick-or-Treaters.
Plus…it is a completely free craft. Got to love that. Kind of like most of my decorations here and here 🙂
One thing that I found was that it was a pain to scrub the glue off the cans when I removed the labels. I just stuck them in the freezer and the glue fell right off. It was a pleasant surprise.
I did this in 10 minutes…so I didn’t use a template because I am lazy and didn’t want this to be a big project…. and you can tell but I still like them. 🙂
They don’t worry me as much as the paper bag kind and….they were free! Ha aha. Love that.
Thank you Kelly for a great, fast, easy, FREE project!
Have a safe and happy Halloween!
I have to make some of these! Gah! I keep just getting rid of cans (DUH, like the two I JUST USED for mandarin oranges for the kids' lunch!) when I should be keeping them for cute projects! What's the matter with me?! 🙂

I love this! I will have to start planning next summer with the cans 🙂
you did them! Oh, I so need to. I guess maybe for Christmas? Could still be cute. Free crafts are the best!
i have some coffee cans waiting around for just this purpose!
what did you use to put the holes in the cans?
Hi Amy! I just use a very large nail and a hammer.
