Sometimes I go to Pinterest and am inspired by all the wonderful and amazing recipes and crafts and do-it-yourself projects that I find. On the other hand, sometimes I go to Pinterest and am completely overwhelmed by the projects, which often require all sorts of tools and ingredients and items that I don't have on hand or that will cost more than the project is ultimately worth. When I saw these Tin Can Summer Lanterns, they brought me back to the pre-Pinterest (pre-Internet even) summer days of my youth when a hammer, a nail, and a tin can were all you needed to create a fabulous craft.
Here's how to recycle a tin can into a pretty summer lantern. You probably already have everything you need to make these and the cost is practically nothing. Best yet, it'll remind you of crafting at camp as a 10-year-old.
