Pop Can Diorama

Hello Everyone,
If you feel bad about throwing out those pop cans or if you have a ton of your kids small toys lying around then don't fear because today I have a super fun diy for you.

Today's diy is a pop can diorama, I did this project forever ago and recently thought that it would be fun to make it again. This is one of those projects where the possibility are endless, and you can really get crafty.

So have fun and I hope you guys enjoy the diy,

Pop Can
Paint Brush (not pictured)
Craft Knife
Hot Glue Gun
Small Toys
Scrapbooking Paper
Marker (not pictured)
Sand Paper (not pictured)

Step 1: With a clean pop can, take your marker and draw the shape you want to cut out.

Step 2: Take your craft knife and carefully cut out your shape. Once your done cutting, take some sand paper and sand down the edges of the can.

Step 3: Paint the inside of your can ( this step is totally optional ).

Step 4: Once your can is dry you can move on to the fun part, making the diorama. Now I knew that I had a small little diner chair, so that gave me the idea to make a mini diner in my pop can. But if you don't know what to do its ok, just gather up all your materials and see what you have to work with. Some items you could use could be:
  • small toys
  • dominos
  • game pieces
  • doll house furniture
  • scrapbooking paper
  • buttons
  • bottle caps
  • beads
  • stamps
  • thread
Now in this bottom photo, I broke down everything so you could see what I use to make my mini diner.

Remember think outside of the box, for example:
  • I use a button as my plate for my hamburger 
  • I cut out a small square from a piece of paper towel, to use as my napkin
  • I sanded down the edges of my domino to give it a more aged look  
  • I use the same type of scrapbooking paper for my floor and wall

When you have all your items glue in then your done!
