We waste lots of packaging everyday, but why not put it to use. Instead of throwing that tin can from the soup you made away, make your own candle holder.
1 tin can
1 tea candle
Place your tin can on a folded kitchen towel (this will keep it from rolling around as you make the holes.) Using the nail, hammer into the tin can in different places making sure to space out the holes as you like. When you have finished adding as many holes as you like, place a candle into the tin can.
