We drink a lot of seltzer water in our home; we end up with many cans in our recycling bin. I thought I’d reuse them to create a bit of interesting lighting for the holidays…
Something different for the table — seltzer water cans are hammered into cubes, pierced and sprayed with gold paint.
I like they way these look like they could be made from paper – they definitely trick the eye.
I used a knife to cut the can in half.
I folded in the rim to create a more finished look.
Using a block of wood as my mold, I hammered the can into a cube shape.
With a nail and hammer, I pierced all four sides.
A quick coat of gold spray paint is the final step.
Tea lights illuminate the cubes from within.
Dark and light with a shimmer of gold make these perfect for a holiday table.
