It took forever, and offered lots of opportunities for “wanna drill my can” jokes, but they are finally done. Months ago I picked up some coffee cans via freecycle, with the intention of drilling holes in them and turning them into large votives. I bought some solar-powered lights and was delighted how well they fit inside, like they were made to rest inside coffee cans. I started drilling….and drilling….and drilling. It took sooo long, partly because the conception of the project was more fun than the creation of the project. I’ll need to go out some night and try to photograph them in use, but here’s the before and after during daylight hours.
