Materials List

  • Tin cans
  • Floral wire
  • Craft patio (outdoor) paints + brush
  • Metal cutter
  • Wire pliers
  • Screwdriver


  1. Remove any labels from the tin cans

  2. Using metal cutters, cut a door in your tin can. You can skip this step and paint on a door instead.

  3. Using the wire pliers, fold back any cut metal pieces to avoid injury.

  4. Paint and decorate your can whoever you wish

  5. Two ideas for a roof:
    1.) Cut a second can in half, followed by cutting slits. Fold the slits upwards and paint. Once dry, perch it atop your house. 2.) Cut up a second tin can and use a small section of the can to make a roof.

  6. If using roof #2 option, use a screwdriver to make two holes in this roof section. Once the holes are made, use floral wire to secure the roof to the can.
