Tin Can Tiki Lamps

Posted by on Aug 05, 2011


For my birthday I had a Tiki themed party. Since actual tiki lamps (not to be confused with tiki torches) are fairly expensive I decided to make a couple using large apple juice tin cans.

I used four Apple Tree apple juice cans. I started by roughly cutting out the eyes and mouth area with metal shears. The I wrapped the whole can in brown felt using hot glue to adhere it to the can. Make a slit in the eyes and mouth area and fold the felt into the inside. This covers all your roughly cut edges. Cut out some tiki shapes in felt. I based all mine on various google images. I also added foam flowers and construction paper fringe. Velcroed a battery operated tea light on the inside.

Materials: tin cans, felt, construction paper
