One day while on Pinterest, I ran across this pin and knew I could recreate it! Not only could I, I would!
So I began collecting cans of all shapes and sizes!
Then we painted them with children’s paint. B pooped out before we got finished painting all of them so we left some silver. I think it added dimension.
After they dry, you need to punch a hole in the bottom. You can either use a hammer and nail or a drill and screw. I ended up using the latter, it was easier (and I couldn’t find anything bigger than a finishing nail…)
Now you’re ready to thread through your hole. I used a drain thingy-ma-bob (doesn’t that sound real technical), washers, yarn, and scissors.
Thread a piece of yarn through the hole and tie a washer to the end.
Pull into the bottom of the can.
Thread the yarn through the drain thingy-ma-bob.
Once they are all strung and adjusted the way you like, make a large knot at the top. Hang outside and listen to the beautiful clanging!!
**I’m one of those people who doesn’t always go to the website that the pin is linked to because I figure I can figure it out from the picture, so I’m not sure how different our tutorials are.**
