Step 1: Step One

The first thing you need to do is find a large can. We used a Ducan Hines More Fruit Cherry can. We cut the bottom off with a can opener and then emptied and washed the can. Make sure to find a can that is able to be opened from the bottom.

Step 2: Step Two

After cleaning out the can, we cut out a piece of wood and attached a PVC pipe to it. We then hot glued the wooden circle to one end of the PVC pipe and glued the lid to the other side. After that, we put the contraption in the can.
