What can you do with an old tin can?

In What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? I included an activity that reuses a tin can to make a lantern... but when I saw this lovely and inventive use of a tin can it made me gasp in awe! It was made by Anna Johansson, fellow RISD alum, and artist with a table next to mine at this fall's RISD art sale. She was generous enough to trade with me so that I could take it home and hang it in my studio window.



She also makes roosters:



Owls:

Inspiring, no?
