HOW TO – Make can lanterns

TangMu writes “Recycle your used drinks cans into potential fire hazards!! A modern take on the paper lantern… now even shinier” –

You will need:
Any size or shape of drinks can (Preferably unopened as of yet as we need the flat top to balance the tea light on)
Something to put said contents of can in.
Our friend Mr Stanley the Knife.
Pliers (I find Snub nosed easier of this)

Also needed but not pictured:
A small length of wire ~10cm
A tea light (those lil lights in a metal pot)
