I created these fun can lanterns for my deck area. I like them in groupings. I chose high heat spray paint; flat black for the outside, and a warm copper for the inside. I do like the glowing effect they give. For a more rustic look, you can simply leave them unpainted.

DIY Flower Pot Candle Holders
One of my favorite DIY projects this month was the colorful, bold candle holders! These candleholders are made of terra cotta garden pots! I love it, a very simple idea! and they are cost-effective and look perfect for any table setting!
DIY Outdoor Chandelier
have a covered outdoor dining area and I always wanted some sort of hanging light fixture. The ceiling is high and I needed something weatherproof. My hope was to find something of a metal or bronze style with simple, clean lines giving a beachy/farmhouse feel. Since the price points weren't ideal for my budget, I came up with my own DIY Chandelier. I love how it turned out!
