A few weeks ago I came across an incredible cute DIY can camera. I first saw a little kid playing with it. It pretended to be a real superstar photographer who gets to travel the world and takes pictures of the most exotic places. I absolutely love that a kid’s imagination can do all of that. But actually we are just grown up kids, aren’t we? And this camera can also inspire an adult’s mind or simply make a nice piece of decoration for your flat.
The first secret for our crazy can camera DIY is: You won’t need many things to make it and it doesn’t take very long! That’s perfect for DIY fans like me who love to be creative but do not have much time. You only need two 0.5 l cans. Of course you can use any can you find, just make sure it has a pretty pattern on it. I think the more color the better! If you like it simple, you can also choose a can without any prints on it.
So here is what you need:
- Two 0.5 l cans
- Super glue or hot glue
- A ruler
Yes, that’s correct, that’s all you need! Crazy how something so pretty can be made with only a few things you find at home, right?
Instead of giving you a long and very descriptive manual on how to make your own personal crazy can camera, I decided to take pictures for every step. Plus I can work on my career as a hand model. 😉 (For protecting your hands I would recommend putting on some security gloves, because there might be some sharp edges). Anyway, here we go:
How do you like my can camera? Do you love it as much as I do? Isn’t it a nifty present for a real camera enthusiast?
