Soda Can Lantern
Go for a walk and pick up aluminium cans for recycling. You get exercise and can make a little cash from recycling!
Other uses for aluminium cans:
- Protect young seedlings from cutworms and other insects in the ground when planting. Cut the top and bottom of the tin can off. Insert the seedlings in the tin can before planting to form a barrier in the ground to protect the roots.
- Use for embossing. Cut the top and bottom lid off. Cut the remainder open lengthwise. Create a pattern and emboss on the shiny side. See how!
- Make recycled soda can lanterns.
- Make shiny garden butterflies. See thumbnail images at top. Click on image to enlarge.
- Make dragonflies with shiny soda can wings and beads.
- Make gift boxes. Emboss and find many templates and gift box patterns here!
