Your belly is full of delicious Spam products but being the thrifty recycle queen you are, you don't want to throw away a perfectly good can. Why not make a fancy TV for your dolls to watch.



You can go from this.....

To this...in a matter of minutes with a little scrap book paper, hot glue and an awesome movie.


And guess what? It lights up!

Fantastic!

I can also see making an old time computer monitor...so many good ideas for using the can!

Love the scene you set up...what did you use for the clear knob?  And what kind of glue for the can?

Just a glass bead and good old fashion hot glue.  Cheesy

The actual TV part is just set in the can. TV lights were added to give that vintage TV glow.
