Tin Man Mania

contest winner icon

I created this mini man from some recycled soup and coffee cans, soda tabs, funnel, bolts, screws, candy tins for feet, coat hangers, swivel, spray paint and tin snips. I used and awl and hammer to make the holes I needed. Tin snips were used to cut out hands and heart. I hang him in my garden. By Wendy S from Coopersburg, PA

you should make some up and advertize them for sale in your front yard others will buy them for there gardens. my sister made some from just large and small coffee cans and they sold for $8 each. but yours are so much more detailed and prettier. great job!

We bought one in AR. for $15 and several people here in CA. wanted one. So DH made a few just to give away. They are fun. They do rust ,so you have to spray paint them silver now and then. GG Vi

Your Tin Man is so cute. Some years ago I did Craft Show and something like this sells great. People are looking for something different. Thank you so much for the picture. Great ideal.

These are cute. One of my customers at the bowling center where I work makes these but he goes a little bit further with them. He makes bird feeders out of them!
