I have a lot of old coffee cans, and tobacco cans laying around, and was trying to think of something to use them for. Here is one of my ideas. It's a star lamp, you can make out of a coffee can, or in this case, a tobacco can.
Step 1: Materials
1 coffee/tobacco can
1 bulb socket
1 cord (I had this one laying around from something or other)
Electrical tape/heat shrink tubing
