Before you toss those cans of beans or soup, save a few for this adorable project.
Over a few days, we rinsed out three cans and set aside until dry. Then it was time to cover them with paint!
Travis particularly loved how the paint went over the ridged parts of the metal.
Once the paint dried, it was time to attach our chimes together – a decidedly mommy job. To make a hole in each can, I held a screw to each and hammered until perforated.
Travis was a big help hammering along next to me with his toy tools!
Threading the cans together proved to be tricky even for adult fingers – I had to use very fun sewing thread.
Eventually we had our three cans in a row and they were ready to chime!
