  • tin cans
  • paper-coated wire
  • file
  • hammer
  • handmade tassel


Step 1

Open the tin can on both ends. Get a file and file down the rough edge from the openings. Next, gently push with your hands the bottom half of the can. Use a hammer to help push down the can if it gets harder to push. (Work the front side first and then flip over and hammer the back.) Before closing down the bottom of the can, you can insert the tassel and glue it down to secure it. When you’re done attaching the tassel, hammer down the bottom to close it. Repeat this process to the rest of the tin cans you have.

Step 2

In preparation for drilling holes at both sides, clamp down the can and then pick which size of bit you want to use. After picking the bit, drill a hole on both sides of the can. Use a file to smooth down both the inside and the outside of the hole.
