Another project brought to you by my coca-cola addiction. This project is a really easy way to recycle your old soda cans. It takes about 20 minutes and I love how these turned out!For this project you will need:
- Soda Cans
- A can opener
- Painter’s tape
- Spray paint in desired color (I went with Gold and Rose Gold metallic spray paint)
First, make sure you have an empty soda can. I used the smaller 8 oz can for this project, but any size will work. Using a can opener take off the top like a a normal can. The can opener leaves the can with a smooth finish around the edge.Wash out the can so you don’t have a sticky soda residue inside. If you want to keep the “share a coke with…” word for your votive like I did, place a rectangle of painter’s tape over the word.Take your cans to a well ventilated area to spray paint them and make sure you cover the ground so you don’t get spray paint where you don’t want spray paint. Hold the spray paint 6-12 inches away from the can, I learned this the hard way and on some of my cans the paint looks runny because I didn’t hold it far enough away from the can. We’re all learning here. Spray all the red part of the can, including over the painter’s tape. I did not paint the bottom or the inside. Let the cans COMPLETELY dry before touching them. I got distracted and left mine out for about an hour. (you can see why you should put something down when you spray paint these.)CAREFULLY remove your painter’s tape. I got a little excited and pulled off a little too much on my Kiss can.
