Tummy Mummy

Made from upcycled cans and an old T-shirt
Time: 30 minutes

1. an old, white T-shirt
2. rinsed out cans (no need to peel off label) 
3.googley eyes
4. super glue
5. ribbon
6. scissors

Step 1: rip T-shit into long strips
Step 2: glue ribbon onto the can to make a handle
Step 3: wrap one piece of shirt around can and tie
Step 4: continue wrapping pieces around the can until it is all covered
Step 5: Open a place for the "mouth" 
Step 6: color in with a Sharpie
Step 7: Glue on eyes
Step 8: Fill with candy!

These were fun to make because I FINALLY thought of something cute to do with recycled cans. I have been saving the sturdy things for a while, but couldn't seem to put them to use until now! I hope this leads to many more ideas!

Probably the saddest thing you'll ever see is a mosquito sucking on a mummy. Forget it, little friend.

If you have a favorite idea on how to recycle cans, leave it in the comment section!
