Now that the weather is nice and brisk, why not have dinner outside? What a better way to set the mood than with candles. A great way to personalize your candles is by making them yourself. It’s actually not that difficult and fun too. Best of all, it’s cheap! You can use candle chips or just melt your old leftover candles.

These distressed and shabby chic pots came out amazing! Two pots were made into succulent planters and two into citronella candles.You can find how to make these over at Homework (one of the cutest blogs around) plus you can find a ton of great diy projects on her weekly link parties.

What a great excuse to eat tuna! You’ll know what I mean when you check out the tutorial for this easy and tres cheap lantern. I found this a while back and I’m embarrassed to say that the my empty tuna cans have been sitting on my counter for 2 months. I need to make this already!
