This is one awesome chair...made out of garbage. Most of us eat canned food from time to time, and all of us receive junk mail. Now you can make a sturdy chair out of items that would normally be thrown away. I covered mine with old jeans, but it can be covered with any medium to heavy weight fabric. A toddler chair could be made with about 50 cans. If the seat were 4 cans wide x 4 cans and only 1 can tall. The arms could be 2 cans tall and the back 3 cans tall.
Step 1: Supplies Needed
Cans from vegetables,(15 ounce) corn, green beans, etc... I used 204 cans for my chair. They were all the same size. I also used 4 more cans for the legs but they were larger. Shredded paper...lots of it. Old jeans, newspapers, cardboard, shipping tape, glue gun and glue sticks. There is a piece of plywood on the bottom. You can use cans for the bottom for the legs like I did or attach store-bought legs. The great thing about making this chair is you don't have to wait until you have collected all the cans to start working on it. I probably spent a total of $10 on this project. Hot glue sticks, Tape and dowel rods.
