Coffee Can Lamp

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I didn't spend hardly any money on this because I mostly used what we had around our house. I think it looks nice and it works good. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful working with the cans as the sharp edges can cut you. Used up a few bandages on this one.

What you will need

  • 2 Coffee cans
  • Tin snips
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Drill
  • Dremmel tool to cut can and curl strips into curly shapes you see
