lets do some halloweeny recycling with Martha Stewart

Create a new Halloween tradition by punching robotlike faces into cans. Add votive candles, and the heads come to life. Place in window, or stack as a centerpiece. Begin by cleaning empty coffee or soup cans and removing labels. Fill can with water, and freeze. Steady frozen can on a bag of rice, and punch holes with an awl and hammer. Defrost and dry. Paint exterior with oil-based enamel; if holes get blocked, poke with a toothpick.

Hello, I was just browsing through different blogs and I came across yours. I wanted to comment on your Blog and voltives. I made these a while ago. I got the how to, from a Martha Stewart magazine. These voltives are soooo pretty to put out around Halloween time. You also have a very interesting blog.
