DIY Pendant Lights Of Tin Cans

You can make a lot of useful things from old tin cans. For example you can make cool pendant lights to hang above your dining table. Large cans that hold vegetables are perfect for the project.

Drill a hole in the bottom of each can for the wire. Insert the wire. Put a light socket into each can. Next, paint cans in bright colors that blend with your interior well. You’re done. Now you just need to hang the lights you made.
