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.

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!
