I made soda can carolers when my kids were young and decided to do an updated version here.  It’s a great holiday upcycle for both children and adults and I’ll show you a variety of ways to create them. All you need are some soda cans, paint and glue to create your own  Soda Can Angel Carolers!  (We’ve provided some printable sheet music for them to hold.)blank630x20

Instructions

These angels are super simple to put together and you can use a variety of extras to fancy them up.  You have to bend them carefully and slowly, just enough so they face forward but don’t tip over. It’s a good idea to practice on some plain empty cans before bending your painted ones.   NOTE: The hole edges can be a bit sharp so if you’ve having children make these be extra careful.
