Tin Can Candles

When I was a kid my dad had a metal work table in our garage with this incredible vice grip that could smash almost anything if you could muster the strength to twist the handle hard enough.  Not sure why, but tin cans were my favorite things to smash.  I have had a long relationship with tin cans and to this day I can't stand to throw them away.  They're perfect for soooo many things AND an excellent upcycle item!  Since many of you are pet parents, use LED tea lights in these candles instead of the real thing and they'll be just as gorgeous.  Reuse and repurpose as much as you can, my wonderful friends, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
