Tin-Can Windsock

A crafty DIY using simple things you may already have at home.

What you need:

  • Tin cans of any size
  • Ribbons
  • Acrylic paint and paint brushes
  • craft glue
  • masking tape

What to do:

Line the inside rim of the can to help avoid sharp edges as you paint and decorate.

Paint the can in your favorite colors and set to dry.

Attach ribbons in the length of your choice to the can using craft glue.

You can also attach ribbons to the top of the can for hanging.

Add any embellishments you like — from gems to stickers.
