Are you looking to add a little light outside on your patio or front stoop? These super vintage DIY Tuna Can Lanterns will fit perfectly in your yard. You can find so many glass lanterns at the thrift store for dirt cheap. Similar looking lantern lights can be very expensive and come in large sets. With these step by step instructions, you can create as many lanterns as you wish. This DIY outdoor project is a more rustic version of a tiki torch. If you plan on having s'mores or a game night outside that requires light, these tuna cans will do just the trick.
