14 DIY things to do with tin cans

The spring of 2020 will have been that of DIY of all kinds. Is lockdown going on for you? Here are other creative ideas! They do not require a big investment and are ecological since they ask to recycle what we all have at home: empty cans. Whether for a practical or purely decorative purpose, we can achieve very beautiful things with these round tin cans. Here are 14 proofs!

1. A decorative bee

A tin can for the body, beer caps for the eyes. Legs in threads and buttons, wings in cut soda bottles. We hang it all outside or in the house! Obviously, we can also make a dragonfly, a butterfly …
