Shooting with film is awesome. Having a ton of leftover film canisters cluttering up space isn't.

If you have a bunch of empty film canisters, you've probably asked yourself before:
"What should I do with all of these?"

In this Instructable, I'll be showing you how you can reuse empty film canisters to make popsicles.

Quick, easy, and there's no mess to clean up.

Step 1: Gather Your Essentials

The goods you will need to make these delicious popsicles are:
  • toothpicks, coffee stirring sticks, cake pop sticks, or anything else strong enough to hold up the popsicle
  • empty film canisters (as many as you'd like!)
  • duck tape
  • beverage of some sort (I'll be using Hubert's Raspberry Lemonade. This was not a mistake.)
  • clear plastic wrap
  • scissors
this is such a great idea! I love shooting film and there are only so many small objects you can put in the canisters. definitely going to make some popsicles (when it gets warm!) :)
Great idea! I always have my eye open for things like this! so many things to make, so little time! Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening! <br>sunshiine
What is this &quot;film&quot; of which you speak? Do this while you can, folks, beause in another 20 years, it might not be possible!

The part where I said &quot;in another 20 years, it might not be possible&quot; was intended to convey the notion that film and, by extension, the film canister was destined to become a thing relegated to history. This, in turn, was supposed to support my (clearly failed) joke about this mysterious thing called &quot;film&quot;. Oh well.....I withdraw my previous comment and replace it with ...Nice project. <br> <br> <br>
