Trash to Treasure: Old Film Canisters

Sasha Andreev shows host Joan Steffend some creative ways to use old film canisters.

  • To make this double picture frame, two tin film canisters are adhered together using epoxy.
  • Holes are drilled in the top of two antique film canisters to make some cheap and easy salt and pepper shakers.
  • The top to the film canister leftover from the frame project is filled with sand and tealights to make a decorative candleholder.
  • A photo plate used to expose film on an old-fashioned camera is transformed into a unique picture frame. The slideout top piece is used to stand up the frame.
