I hope I spelled luminaries right...

Take a tin can, fill with water, freeze, use hammer and nail to make design,let ice melt (outside), light candle, display.
I had fun with mine and used an extra big can, one of those food storage cans or buy in bulk beans and made a heart with the message inside 'Kiss Me' It hasn't gotten any attention yet. I'm thinking of making one to display for halloween.

Very cool. Do you have any pics of it lit up?
It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

Ohhh great idea (although, I MIGHT hammer my thumb off) -  I bet these would look really cool with a jack-o-lantern design!

I love these type of luminaries-and you're smart to remember to freeze them!

Oh - I've done this!  I admire your tenacity.  I did about 5 cans and painted them navy blue - I hurt so many fingers that I could never dare to do it again.  Hammering in a cylinder?  Especially one frosty with ice?  RISKY!
Great job!
