Step 1:

First a build a circle out of four five way connectors and four eight way connectors.

Now get the three, four, and five way connectors with six small green connectors, four white, and one blue rod, then assemble as shown in pictures.

Step 4: Straps for Keeping Pepsi Can Hat in Place.

The next thing to do is to put the Straps for keeping pepsi can hat in place, you can do this by taking a green bendible rod and connecting it like shown in the picture.

Step 5: Building the The Rest of the Can Holder.

Now we can build the rest of the can holder. Start by puting four of the brown colored rods in the corners of the white and green four way connectors, then attach the middle part of the red three way connectors at the top, after that is done connect four blue rods as shown in the pictures.

Step 6: Building the Rest of the Can Holder.

Now that you have completed the first part of the can holder now we can build the bottom. Now take four orange connectors and connect as shown, now you are finished enjoy.

Note: can be a little tricky trying to put the white connector in the bottom.

    It's cool! 5*s, but don't drink diet, it has harmful ingredients that have the possibility to get you sick / have cancer, my mom is obsessed with researching about this stuff.
