Every holiday season we get a lot of yummy goodies tucked inside beautifully ornate tin buckets. After we quickly devoured the contents, we are left with the empty containers. While they do make good keepsake container for all kinds of small items in the house such as coupons, receipts, mail, cleaning supplies and such, there are times I wish I could do more with them. Heres an easy kids craft project involving recycled Christmas tin buckets.

Recycled Luminary Kids Craft Project

Kids Recycling Craft Project Material:

Empty tin cans
Your design (simple design works best here - think of stars, hearts, flowers, trees and such)
A large nail
A hammer
A votive candle

Instructions for Recycled Tin Buckets Luminary Project:

1. Fill the empty buckets with some water and freeze the water first. This will make it easier to hammer the design into the buckets.

2. Tape your design around the can.

3. Take the large nail and hammer it until it punches a hole through the bucket. Continue to drill holes around the border of your design. You need enough holes so you can see what the pattern is, but try not to punch the holes too closely together.

4. After you have punched holes all around the design, remove the paper & tape from the bucket.

5. Wait for the ice to melt. Run water over it to speed up the process. Dry the tin bucket with a towel. Place a votive candle in the bottom of the tin bucket.

6. Sit back and admire your work.
