TIN CAN CAN­DLE­HOLDER

BE AN ECO-SAVER AND D.I.Y CRAFTER AT THE SAME TIME! GIVE YOUR ROOM A RUS­TIC LOOK WITH TH­ESE TIN CAN CAN­DLE­HOLD­ERS!

CLEO (Malaysia) - - HOME PAGE -

Ham­mer, nail, empty tin can, rice grains, per­ma­nent marker pen, thick cloth, and a tea light can­dle. Clean the tin can thor­oughly, mak­ing sure there is no residue left. Us­ing the per­ma­nent marker, draw the out­line of your de­sign onto

the can.

Fill the can to the brim with rice grains and wa­ter. Store the can in the freezer for a good six to nine hours. This will help the tin can re­tain its shape when you are do­ing step 4.

Lay down the thick cloth on a solid sur­face and place the frozen can on top of it. Ham­mer the nail on the pen lines to cre­ate tiny holes.

Once the can’s con­tents have thawed, wipe it dry, place a tea light can­dle in­side, and There you have it, your very own can­dle­holder! Twenty-four per cent of CLEO read­ers voted mop­ping as their most hated house­hold chore. Wash­ing the bath­room and iron­ing tied as sec­ond least favourite with 20 per cent each. Do­ing the dishes and laun­dry both scored 18 per cent votes. They might be more tol­er­a­ble but are dis­liked all the same!
