What you need to make some nifty beer holders

The tins we used were a quite deep, which made it a little difficult to grab a beer if it was in a can – it kinda get lost inside the tins. So we cut circles from wood off cuts using a hole saw and then we drilled a 8 mm hole in the center of each wooden circle and in the bottom of the tin cans.

Use a hole saw to cut circles for the bottom of the cans

We sprayed the cans and wooden circles using some left over Rust-Oleum textured paint from one of our other projects and began joining up all the bits. Take a 8 mm nut and thread it onto the thread bar, then add a big, fat washer, insert the thread bar into the tin can , add another big fat washer and another nut. Tighten the nuts and squish the wooden circle onto the thread bar on the inside of the can.

P.S. For a personal touch add some chalk board labels.

P.S.S Plonk some ice cubes in the tin can before inserting your beer for that perfectly chilled effect
