I used used recycled tin soup cans for this DIY making it cost-efficient andc eo-friendly. Best of all, the tin coordinates beautifully with the silverware and reflects the warm glow of a candle. A 3-inch (in diameter) candle fits perfectly into the can—making it look like it was meant to be!
Step 1: Cut fabric wide enough to cover the can and long enough to wrap around it. Secure it to the can by wrapping a few pieces of raffia around the can. Tie in a double knot. Cut away excess.
Step 2: Place a candle on top.
Step 3: Place on the table.
If you would like your table to have a centerpiece, make a few candle holders and line them up along the center of the table. Or, group a few of the candle holders on a tray that can easily be removed when it is time to make room for the turkey. You can even use one of the candle holders as a small vase. I use fall foliage from my yard to make the cans into vases for the place settings at each end of the table.
