How to Make Crafts Using Coffee Cans


This craft challenge item is an 'old-fashioned' coffee can. I say old-fashioned because these days it seems like a lot of coffee comes in plastic containers. Hopefully you can scrounge up a coffee can and make something with it. Your project can use one or more coffee cans, and it can include the lid or not. Browse through these projects and submit your own.
