Tin Can Windsocks

These recycled tin can windsocks are so fun to make with materials you already have at home!

You’ll need: a clean recycled can (any size), acrylic paint and paintbrushes, glue, ribbons (or yarn or colored paper will work), masking tape, glitter and stickers (optional)


  1. Start by lining the inside rim of the tin cans with a thick layer of tape to avoid sharp edges.
  2. Paint the can any colors you want!
  3. Once the paint is dry, use glue to attach your ribbon, yarn or strips of colored paper (whichever option you have available) to the bottom of the can. You can also glue some to the top of the can in order to hang it somewhere.
  4. Hang these on your front porch and you can put them in your yard or garden when spring begins to arrive!
