Once you finish a soup can, you could wash it out and use it as a pencil can.  You know, to keep your desk tidy, but there's one problem, that's boring. Instead, using a couple of other materials you already have, like rivets and bottle caps, you can transform it into your very own stylish caterpillar pencil can!  Because, who doesn't love caterpillars?

Step 1: Materials and Tools

For this project you will need:
A soup can
4 bottle caps 
4 pop rivets
An inch or two of thin magnet wire

Drill with bit for rivet
Tin snips or pliers to cut the wire
Rotary tool with conical drill bit

This is really cute! Thanks for sharing your hard work.
Thank you!
