Rockin' {Pringles Can} Rocket

Houston, we have lift off! This rockin' rocket puts my Pringles can Independence Day series into orbit!  

You simply take my original firecrackers {tutorial *here*} and...

 turn them upside down...

...and then add a cone 'nose'...

...and you have rocket lift off!

Look closely for the added bling as it speeds past you...

You can write on the Pringles can rocket...

...and fancy it up with the famous Tinfoil Rickrack {tutorial *here*}

They look really GREAT! A perfect size for party decor.

Duck! The Pringles can rockets are fabulous as part of an Independence Day mobile. Hang them with fishing wire from your trees or porch and watch them fly!


The fun part of creativity is seeing how many ideas and variations you can generate from a theme, like uses for a Pringles can for the 4th of July.



But what about the stars? Check them out ~here~


The third Pringles Can project? You can see that now ~ a Patriotic working Straw Caddy you can easily make yourself! {tutorial *here*} You'll love it for the cookout and all summer long.


Here's a another quick, fun idea: faux leather fringe popcorn snack bags!

I think in addition to my glass recycling bin and paper and cans that I need a craft recycling bin just for stuff I can turn into something. I have a feeling that bin would be more full than the others!
