Welcome! Finally, we are back in our “craft video content” creating mode (that was a mouthful)… yes, we had a little break and now we are back with avengance.. today we look at Tin Can Crafts – you know, your bake bean cans or your tuna fish cans? Quite sturdy and strong… with tricky tin can properties – how do you best apply paint? How do you get holes into them? Can you avoid the sharp tin can edges? Well, as in the past, we have created a little video discussing some of these properties and looking at a great set of tin can upcycling ideas. And then, to make it even better, I have scoured the web for more great tin can craft ideas – I have to say, there were more out there than I expected! So, I do hope you ENJOY.
