I came across this idea on Recicla e decora, a Brazilian blog, and thought it was great. The site luckily had the link to an English website as well, as my Portuguese is not that fluent… The Brazilian blog is worth checking out though, if only for some cool photos of recycling ideas.
Anyway, where was I. Yes, making garden lights out of tin cans. Now at this time of year Scottish nights ‘al-fresco’ are not particularly cozy, so I’d probably use the lights inside, but I’m sure they look awesome outdoors too. For the full how-to – in English – look at this article by Michelle Gervais.
