Surferchick 1700 shows us how to upcycle a tin can into a tealight holder in this upcycling video tutorial. They look really cute and it’s amazing how a small detail such as adding a twist to the wire handle can really help make the design.
If you don’t have a drill can also use a nail and a hammer to make the holes in the tin can.
The materials and equipment that you will need to upcycle your tin cans are shown below.
- Old cans
- Paper with your printed or drawn design
- Spray paint
- Wire coat hanger
- Tea lights
- Sticky tape
- Marker pen (to mark out the holes where the handle will go)
- Drill or a nail and hammer
- Metal File
- Wire cutters
- Pliers to help shape the wire
