Tin Can Chandelier

Much like glass jars, I also save tin cans.  If you have any doubt in your mind, I do have hoarder tendencies!  This leafy chandelier definitely needs some beads and crystals but even in this simple incarnation, I love the way it looks.   The shadows it gives are magical!  Now, lots of folks are scared of cutting tin, and though it can be sharp and scratchy, just pop on some cheap gloves and you'll have nothing to worry about!  Also, make sure to use tin shears that cut with a serrated edge.  This keeps the edge of the tin dull so you can't cut yourself.  Give everything a second life, my amazing-creative friends, and always Make Your Mark!

A pretty, clear bulb looks best!
