Flickering candlelight is perfect for sharing ghost stories. We used sheets of decorative aluminum to cast spooky shadows long into the night.
Make the Halloween craft: Cut the sheets into strips with tin snips. Use food containers, such as soup cans, to figure out your dimensions. A 10x17-inch piece makes a large lantern; a 4x10-inch strip makes a votive.
Roll the strips into cylinders, using the food containers as molds. To secure, twist wire through the mesh at the top, middle, and bottom of the seams. Turn edges of wire to inside and trim excess. Spray surfaces with two coats of black primer; let dry between applications.
