It was my moms birthday and I wasn't sure what to make for her...she loves the outdoors and I knew she would like something to put out in your yard.....so I saved up some different sizes of cans and came up with this:

That is so cute and such a good recycling idea.
If you're using it as a planter is there a way to rust proof him?

Oh gosh!  Long ago I fell in lurrrrrve with a tin-can-man.  But sigh, it was not to be.  Alas he lived in Florida and I in NY.  So I made my own when I got home.  He guards my yard from the tree.  And he has rusted.  Makes him look rugged and manly.

Your's is cuter, but don't tell my tin-can-man!

lol!  thanks for the compliments!

I am sure you could spray him with something to make him rust proof...I'm really not sure......I didn't worry about that....I just had to figure out how to make holes to screw it together without a drill....lol....that was a challenge!

Speaking as a mom, I would love to have one of these in my yard. Very clever idea. Thanks for sharing it.

Jesus loves me, this I know.

I think he is adorable.  you should plant some wheat grass to grow out of his head and give him some funky hair.  Cutie.  Cutie.  I personally think he would look great rusted.  I would also have to find a way to give him a red smile and a red heart just because that's how I roll.

I did buy him a hat...but I forgot it in the picture!  He has a visor...I wanted to get him a cowboy hat, but I couldn't find one in his size!  I just love him....I got the idea from a Mary Englebret book...I checked it out from the library a long time ago and then returned it and couldn't find it again...so I just made him up myself......lol....bolts....lots of bolts......and those L thingies you find in the hardware section.  They worked great!  I think he would look cute with some green hair!  Smiley
