This is the first in a three part series that will keep all your cans out of the trash or recycling bin! To begin, you need a can.
|Lentil pastina soup|
The next day...
Gather up your materials: a hammer, a big nail (I found this one in the bottom of the tool chest - I don't know what the technical size is, but it's got a good diameter), a sharpie marker, and your can full of ice
Draw a design on one or both sides of the can using the marker. You could also free draw it. Keep your design fairly simple. The next time I do this, I think I'm just going to do spirals and curved lines.
|Yep, there are the ice chips.|
|Yeah, it's pretty wonky. But it still works.|
I didn't take a picture of the next step because I know you can figure it out without a visual. Use the can opener to take off the bottom of the can. Save the bottom - put it with the the top and the label. Don't be like me and leave them on the kitchen table where they will be sucked into the Twilight Zone...
Put it over a candle (I used one of those battery-operated tea lights because that's what was handy) and you're good to go!
|As I said, next time I'm going for spirals...|
