If I'm not taking my aluminum cans to the recyclers, I'm making things with them. These pinwheels are easy to make and a delight to watch spin in the wind. There are certain spots in our garden where squirrels wreak havoc, so we place them there to keep them at bay with the bright reflections. Please wear heavy duty gloves when cutting and shaping aluminum cans.
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 1 pinwheel
Thanks. This looks easy enough, and I'm going to try it.
Some are worth keeping around. The ones with character, that interact, and do not bust up your beautiful garden!!!
I make no apologies. When every year, hundreds of bedding plants are dug up and die because their roots are exposed to the Sun, the only good squirrels with character are dead squirrels with character.
I worked long and hard to grow these pansies from seed, only to have squirrels dig them up, merely for the hell of it. Yes, I wish they all were dead.
Yes, I could love a squirrel as much as any dog, cat, or bird I have made friends with. But it hurts to see what you have worked so hard for destroyed just for fun.
