DIY Wedding Car Cans

Is this even legal anymore? I’m not sure but I know I haven’t seen it done for quite a while! It seems that one of the more traditional things of a wedding is now an unusual thing to do! But where did it all start? I did a quick Google search and I got a couple of answers! The 1st being that the tradition is from the Middle ages, the noise was apparently used to warn off  evil spirits from kidnapping the bride! The 2nd being to get people’s attention to show off that you’re married and proud! I’m not sure which is true but either way I think these look really cute! If you want to know how to make your own then just read on…

You will need

You will need:

Empty tins                  Scrapbook paper                         String                            Glue                         Sharpie

 Screw Driver               Mallet/Hammer

Step 1

Step 1: Remove the labels from your can and give them a good ol’ scrub!

Step 2

Step 2: Measure the size of the can against your scrapbook paper and cut it down to fit!

Step 3

Step 3: Glue the scrapbook paper to the can.

Step 4

Step 4: Do the same for all of your other cans.

Step 5: Now come’s the fun part! Grab your sharpie and get creative!

Step 6

Step 6: Repeat on all cans!

Step 7

Step 7: Take your screw driver and hammer then knock the screwdriver through the can. This is definitely easier if somebody holds the can for you! (I learnt that the hard way!)

Step 8: Pull the string through the holes and knot in place.

Step 9

Step 9: Tie the string on all of the other cans then fasten tightly in place on the back of the car!
