Is it teething time for your little one?


With holidays, weddings and garden parties coming up over the next few months, it’s always good to have some easy, cool DIY craft projects on file. This one is a particular favourite of ours, and will work great in the garden, on the balcony, or even in your dining room.


What you will need:

  • Hammer
  • Long nail
  • Used, cleaned tin cans
  • Spray paint in colours of your choice
  • Newspaper



What to do:

  1. Taking great care, hammer your nail at various points around the tin can, creating a series of little holes all over.
  2. Next, lay out some newspaper and spray a colour paint of your choice all over the outside of the tin can. You might want to do this outside, if you have the weather – it will help you to avoid the mess!
  3. Allow the tin cans to dry, then place a battery-operated tea-light inside.
  4. Dim the lights, power up your mood lighting, and bask in the ambiance!
