About: Hi, my name is Gabriel, I love crafting especially out of cardboard I also love the outdoors and camping.

Please be patient as this is my first instructable.

Step 1: Materials

Materials you'll need include

A tin can

Plyers

Can opener

Scissors

Super glue

Sand paper

Tape (optional)

Duck tape (also optional)

Step 2: Cut the Top Ring Off

This step is simple enough, all you need to do is cut the top ring off to create a flat surface.

Step 3: Cut a Strip Off

Next take a pair of scissors or metal cutters and cut a strip a bit wider than you want the ring to be. I made the mistake of not using scissors the first time so my first one was very jagged.

Step 4: Trim Down to Size

This can just be done with scissors and is simple enough

Step 5: Mark Your Finger Size

Wrap it around your finger once pretty loose and mark it, you will then want to cut a little off each side from the mark down.

Step 6: Final Step, Glue It

Curl it around your finger to the mark you made earlier, then put a dot of glue on and roll it up a little continue this until you reach the end, then put a dot of super glue on hold in place till it dries (I used pliers and held them together using tape) you can sand down the sides if you want, also you can line the inside with duck tape for added comfort. Thanks and i hope you've enjoyed this instructable.

    Clever little project! Sanding down the sides a little is a good tip, nice to see that you mentioned that.
