The weather is so hot these days....(about 34 degree Celsius at noon) ...
Making me craving for a nice cold drinks...
Looking at the can remind me a nice upcycle craft I saw in the recycle center few days ago
I'm not sure who did it... but it do look nice..
(so bad I didn't have my camera on hand.. but don't worry...I remember it's look....)
it look something like this
So, let's me show you how I done it... using my imagination... by judging the result!
Cut away the top of the can (It's advisable to use glove...although I didn't use it..)
Use a scissor and cut the can into strips....I didn't really measure it... mine is about 3mm in width..., the number of strips and the widths with pattern you end up with...This is my first trial... so, I just cut and plan along the way... if you wish to do this... you should plan what pattern you wish to make and calculate the number of strips you need.
I cut about 32 strips and make a pattern out of 4 strips...
Slightly twist the strips and tie it into a 'pony tail' like this with some can strips ( I cut from the can top I remove earlier... or you can use some fine wire also..)
Step # 4
Use a tweezers to hold the tip of the strip and roll it all the way down like opening a sardine can.
As I said earlier... I have 32 strips and I made a 'pony tail' out of 4 strips...so I have 8 patterns when I'm done. You can change to 62 strips and made something more define like a quilling pattern... that will be WOW!
Here my end result....
You can use it as a pin holder or...
Turn it around as a candle holder!!!
See you. Have a nice crafty day!
