Pinterest strikes again!

Seriously, I might be obsessed at this point.

This month’s school project was to turn an item (or items) from the recycling box into something else.

In other words, upcycle the recycle!

I thought we could turn them into wind chimes. A rainbow window chime.

We gathered string and bottle caps. We punched holes in the caps and cans. We tried and tried to tie the cans together to make anything that would resemble a wind chime. And when that went to hell in a hand basket I went on Pinterest.

And saw this awesomeness pinned. A tin-can lantern? Yeah we can!

The holes required a little more than a hammer and nail, so we enlisted dad’s help because while he says I don’t know how to use the power tools really it’s just that he doesn’t like to share his toys

And then gave it a new paint job with something more durable to the elements (Chrome!)….

Too bad we don’t get marks in SK because this totally deserves an A+
