Anyway, I'm going to start posting the projects I've worked on during the last month or so...but in the spirit of crazy disorganization, we'll start with the latest one first. I LOVE light, and have so many ideas of things to do with the excess Christmas lights I have picked up at the post-holiday sales, and we'll get to em shortly. I was wandering the hallowed halls of Home Depot last week and picked up some gutter guard and aluminum flashing with a vision in mind. After lots of scrapes, riveting, tin-snipping and butterfly punching, I have an awesome lantern.
- gutter guard (about $2)
- aluminum flashing (a roll of this is about $8, and I used less than $1 worth)
- various soda cans (free...kinda)
- flameless candle I bought on clearance for $1...they have these at the Dollar Tree as well.
While I am proud of the minimal expense of this project, it did take a lot of time to put together, mainly because I was engineering it as I went along.
I will be adding more detailed instructions, but for now, I just want to brag about it!
