Tin cans upcycled into bird scarers. I used old baked bean tins cleaned out and removed the lids and bottoms, then stuck ribbon pieces to one end from the inside, and took some free wallpaper border samples from B which I cut to size and stuck to the outside. Much easier than painting them and much nicer to look at. These will be hung in our allotment to scare the birds, and look pretty. Upcycle garden craft idea
