Nothing is quite so backwoods as Iced Tea flavoured beer! However soda or energy drink cans will work as well. If you use a regular can your angel will look fat! Not that there is anything wrong with that, but you do not want to overshadow Santa for obvious reasons....
Where was I???? Oh yes, the skinny can. this is the best choice and the Coors Light Iced Tea has a wide mouth which will come in handy later....
Step 1: Start Here
Step 2: Tape and Cut
Mark off a tape wide strip on the opposite side of the can from the opening also going from top to bottom.
Mark off a tape wide strip around the can from the nearest beveled edge both top an bottom.
Write on the tape as shown to prevent mistakes.
If a mistake is made have another beverage then start again. Enjoy responsibly and don't get drunk or near sugar coma!
Step 3: Cut the Can
Careful! The edges of the can could be jagged and sharp from this point on. Thin metal can cut deep... you have been warned... See... this is another reason why you shouldn't drink too much...
Step 4: Shape the Wings
If you want a little flair... Use a Popsicle stick and sharpie to first make a diagonal line from the top inward to the bottom then use the stick to make individual feathers as shown.
Cut along the outline then about an inch inward from the diagonal line.
Drag your thumbnail along the center of the "feather" to create texture...
Clean the sharpie lines with a little IPA ( rubbing alcohol)
Step 5: Head and Halo
Overlap the curled strips together to form a halo.
You can fold the 1/4 inch section along the back, out again to create a neck.
Step 6: Mount!
Alternately you can place a candle in the base an use the can as a festive Christmas ornament!
