Bean and coffee can frame

Mesilla Park, NM

There is a neat site called gingerbreadsnowflakes.com that has a tutorial on hoe to work recycling cans and Pam Harris is the owner of that blog and she also made a frame. I used more cans because this frame is bigger. Here it is, "Our Lady of Guadalupe" she fit perfect in this frame. Since this particular frame, which is my first one, I've made many more using tin and more cans.

What a great idea for upcycling cans, Gourd. That's an interesting site for some new ideas. Thanks!

Thanks guys, just a hammer and nail.. Did you see her light shields? I made these and want make some foe the patio lights and hopefully enough for the Xmas tree. The lights are at the end ..super easy to make following her instructions. If any one makes them and wants to know what I used to punch out the center hole for the lights , ill take a picture of the hollow punches from dh's tool box.

I've made punched tin candle holders in the past. I was happy with the way they turned out. Everything you made is very attractive, Gourd. I should make more candle holders since I've long since forgotten what I did with them. :(
