Free Recycled Can Projects

All of these projects are using recycled Cans.
These craft projects combine my love for recycling items and thrift store finds.

In the top picture I used a juice can and the last 3 were made out of large coffee cans.
Simply by gluing and wrapping the cans with jute or twine you will have a base to decorate in any number or ways.
The first can I added some wooden things I found at a thrift store not sure what they are, but they look like buttons with no back.
The second one was decorated with a piece of fur that was salvaged off of a coat I picked up a small grocery bag full of the salvaged pieces for $1.00. I hot glued it around the upper edge and then cut 3 strands of jute and glued it to the under edge of the fur and added some beads and a feather.
The third one was decorated again using a combination of those wooden finds that look like buttons and pieces of fur .
The last one has a play horse on it that I picked up at the local dollar store.
