Making Truly Inspired Crafts That Add Light To Your Home - Tin Can Holder, Recycled Jars and more...

Updated on July 4, 2012

Check out the tutorials below...

Flower Fairy Lights

Created out of egg cartons and led lights, these Flower Fairy Lights offer an unusual way to light your home with soft colours. With minimal skills, a handmade vine of light-emitting glory can easily be created. Besides taking a greener approach to life, these Flower Fairy lights offer a creative alternative to plain everyday décor.

Night Light Painting

Using a lightweight canvas fabric, some acrylic paint and a light bulb you could easily create your own night light. A fabulous and fairly simple idea. Change the colours and add your own pattern to create a personal touch. Or even create a night light for your children! There’s plenty of space for creativity.

Light Bright

This piece illuminates its light like little stars. With a stretched out canvas and white twinkly tree lights, it’s easy to create this beautiful effect. Once again this is a fairly simple project that could easily be customised depending on how creative you’re feeling.

Recycled Glass Chandelier adds light to Garden Parties

This recycled glass chandelier is made with baby food jars and creates a really relaxing ambience. A perfect way to light your garden at night.

Tin Can Candle Holder

Tin cans can be used to make all kinds of candle holders, providing a unique touch to your home or garden. They can be cut, punched, painted, weathered and modified in multiple ways. They can be set on top of a table or hung out in the garden. With a little bit of imagination and paint, you can turn any tin can into something worth putting on a table or mantle.

      What beautiful ideas! I think the Light Bright would be perfect art-work for my nursery. It is both beautiful and practical.
