  • Old jeans
  • Scissors

  1. Clean out an empty can. For best results, use a can with a wide mouth and a smooth edge.
  2. Measure and cut jeans to fit exactly around the can.
  3. Using the spray adhesive, attach the jeans to the can.
  4. Decorate the can with decals. We used detachable velcro decorations from PakNak.
