Ok, so at about 2 in the morning, I looked over at my beside table and saw a Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper can....I just couldn't throw it away, I loved the design for some odd reason. So I grabbed the can, and saw a tack, and began to poke holes along the words of "Dr. Pepper." Hmmm, I thought, this is looking pretty cool. So I finished it, and then suddenly I got the idea that it would make a rad candle holder, and that the holes would light up and spell "Dr. Pepper" So, once I'm done poking the holes I take a pair of scissors to it and get this...

The can without a candle lit behind it...

And lit up...

The pictures don't show how cool it looks lit up, but I figured I'd post it anyway...any feedback is appreciated.

Suprisingly, no. It doesn't hit the alluminum at all...I'm able to blow the candle out and pick it up and move it and it's not even warm to the touch.
