I already made ash tray with beer can but this time, I wanted to make something for non-smokers and also for this Christmas season. I actually imaged chrismas ornament to make this. Eventhough This candle holder needs little more time and skills than ash tray, it will be nice home decoration and also hearty small gift.

Step 1: All you need

•Tall pop can(any kind of cans are good)
•Can opener
•Your hands

I choose Dr. Pepper big size can because of the red color to make it look like a Christmas ornament. Some kinds of green can will also be nice too.
This is beautiful, but how did you make this without cutting your fingers to shreds?
Thank you for the comment chabias. As I wrote several times in my instructables, you have to be really careful...lol But, If you still scared of cutting your fingers, I think you can use thin rubber gloves when you make this. That'll be safer:)
It look really cool, it doesn't seems a can at all!
Thank you so much. I'm so glad to hear that! And sorry for the late reply^_^;
Cool idea and looks good! The instructible though confusing/unclear in many parts (mostly the ones where you just slapped down a short, compact phrase).
I'm still learning English so sometimes it's a little bit hard for me to pick right expressions. But, slapped down sounds very good word for me to use from now. <br>Thank you very much for your helpful advise:D <br>
love it
Thank you:D
Many years ago they used to do this with plastic bleach bottles to make baskets &amp; other decorations. Way to recycle both the can &amp; the idea ... COOL!!!
I searched for the plastic bleach bottles creations on the internet. Those are very interesting! Thank you for telling me that.
Love this! Whimsical, complex-looking result, yet it's so simple to make
It is whimsical! my boy friend is actually thinking it's ONION candle holder! hahaha <br>Thank you for the comment:)
I know it says juice can right in the title, but looking at that picture I didn't think it could be just a regular juice can. But it is! Awesome design :)
Thank you very much. I wanted to make something soft-looking object with hard-material so that people might not notice this is made with juice can.
