A Secret of Gardening

I found this wonderful photo and it hits me. In gardening, its true, there are times when you do not need a box to garden. Just plant and you will see the plants, seeds, flowers, and fruits bloom. With all the freedom they can enjoy and deserve to have under the sun. Much a lot like in life. Why think of the box? Why "box" yourself or let others box you? Take it from your garden. Breathe life and enjoy the sun. You will be astonished on how lovely and liberating the feeling is when you let each day takes it's course. And you have come full-bloom!

How to Make Garden Lanterns from Old Tin Cans

How to Make Garden Lanterns from Old Tin Cans

Light up the night with old tin cans. The rustic appeal will add warmth and a glow to any boring summer evening. You will only  need some any sized tin cans , leaves to use as a pattern and a hammer and nails.

1. Clean up the tin can. Open each tin can and remove the top (along with any contents). Remove labels and wash with warm soapy water. Dry completely.
2. Discard any cans that are damaged or rusted. Freezing the tin can first will prevent your tin from being deformed once you start hammering it.
3. Fill the tin can up to 3/4 of its length with sand. This will prevent bulging of the tin can when frozen. (Water expands when it freezes.)
4. Add water.
5. Place the tin can inside the freezer.  Wait until the water freezes. Then remove the tin from the freezer.
6. Choose a suitable leaf to place on tin can. Tape the leaf in place on the can. Check that you like the placement and size before you begin to hammer.
7. Tap the first nail into the leaf, being careful not to rip or break the leaf. Consider hammering the first nail toward the top of the leaf to stabilize your design.
8. Hammer the remaining nails around the perimeter of the leaf in order to create a pattern. Space the nail holes evenly so your design appears symmetrical.
9. Remove the nails and pull or tear off the leaf to expose the design. You should be able to see the same leaf pattern now outlined in nail holes on the tin can.
10. Spray paint the can after you’ve created the design, so that you don’t disturb the paint (painting beforehand may create a more rough exterior). Place the tin can in an open, covered area. Spray paint it the desired color.
11. Allow the tin can to dry for up to 24 hours. However, most spray paints will dry within 3 hours if left in a cool, dry area.
12. Fill the bottom of the can with sand. Fill it with about a ½ cup of sand, depending upon the can size.
13. Place the votive in the middle of the can, resting on the sand.
14. Light the votive. (Or, turn on battery operated votive.) This will light up the night.
15. You’re done! Enjoy! J
