Recycled Tin Can Windsocks

Kids Working on an Arts and Crafts Project at Dinner TableAt Blossman Gas, we believe that happiness is homemade which is why we LOVE this arts and crafts project! You can use what you have around the house (even a tin can that was emptied for dinner!) to make these simple windsocks. It’s a simple craft that is perfect for spring time and Mother’s Day!

Clean Recycled Can (any size will work!)
Acrylic Paint & Paintbrushes
Glue (Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue, Tacky Glue, or a Low-Temp Glue Gun)
Assorted Ribbons (you could also use Yarn, Colored Paper, etc.)
Optional embellishments like Glitter, Stickers, Gemstones, Sequins, etc.
Masking Tape or Duck Tape

Before starting the project, line the inside rim of the cans with a layer or two of thick masking or duct tape to avoid sharp edges!

Paint the can in colors of your choice.

Once the can is dry, decorate the outside with glitter, gemstones, or anything else you have on hand.

Use the glue to attach colorful ribbons to the bottom rim of the can and a ribbon to the top of the can for hanging.
