Use decorative aluminum sheets from Home Depot to make your own "Moroccan style" lanterns. Cut, sand edges so they don't scratch, use wire to hold them together. Use mat spray paint in any color you like to finish off the lanterns. This idea is genius!
DIY PROJECT:COFFEE CAN LANTERNS - Instead of setting them up with clamps and wood and stuff I have seen the same thing done where you just fill the can with water and freeze. Which means you then have a good sturdy surface to hammer the designs into.
