I use the cans from evaporated milk , or canned mushrooms , or dark-green chilis. Make sure all the ones you select are the same  -- same food , same merk -- and so they all fit just.

It'sec important that you lot become about both tiptop too bottom edges a few times with a tin opener. Make sure at that place are no sharp burrs. After this betoken , the project is kid-friendly.

Remove the label too both ends of the tin , too wash it well.

Using pair of scissors , cutting the iii-foot slice of foil into iii 
one-pes lengths. Then cutting each inward half.

Place a prepared can at the center of 1 edge of a piece of foil ,
and whorl it so it's covered. 

Where the foil overlaps , run a small business of white glue , 
in addition to press to agree the border flat. 

Tuck the edges inside the can as well as flatten them amongst fingers. 
Finger press the pinnacle too bottom edges. 

Paint the outside of the tin can alongside black arts and crafts pigment. 
Be sure to become into all the wrinkles. 

Before the pigment dries completely , rub off virtually of it 
with your rag. Let it dry for an hr. 

Once y'all spray on a few calorie-free coats of clear gloss , 
it volition wait like onetime metallic. 

You can decorate your napkin rings amongst beads. 
This 1 wasn't antiqued with dark paint. 

I painted this version alongside blood-red as well as chocolate-brown 
craft paints to expect similar former leather. 

Another slowly treatment is to wind the tin 
with a or so decorative duct record. 

Although I designed these napkin tings for place settings inwards a staged abode , they're sturdy enough to agree upward to ordinary role. I promise you accept fun inventing your own fashion napkin rings from upcycled can cans.
