Tin Jack o lanterns

I was just checking out the Martha Stewart website and I found this Halloween project and it involves recycling! This project is really simple. All you have to do is
  1. Take a clean used coffee or soup can
  2. Fit with water & freeze
  3. Take the frozen can and lay it across a bag of rice to steady it
  4. Punch holes using an awl and hammer into any pattern you want
  5. Paint the can using oil based enamel & let dry. If the holes become covered, use a toothpick to clear them.

You can then add a votive candle and you get a tin jack o lantern!
