Keeping it Simple: Whatever Wednesday: Angry Birds Cans

Whatever Wednesday: Angry Birds Cans

For my son's birthday party, the theme was angry birds!! I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I wanted to do it for the party. It was perfect and so much fun for the kids.


This is how I made it:
1) I got some regular cans, washed them and removed the label.
2) Next we painted them green.
Here they are green. Spray paint would have been easier, I didn't have any at the time though.
3) I cut out some pigs out of black Expressions Vinyl. I just used the pictures from my Angry Bird shirts.
4) Then I put the vinyl onto the cans
I stacked them up
And just like that, it's a fun game! I just used a plush bird that I bought at the store.


The kids LOVED this game during the party.
We even got some wood out and put the cans onto those.
My six year old got super creative with building them!
My boys liked it so much, they played for days after the party!

Do you love this idea but can get the vinyl?  I will cut some for you!  Just email me at kaysiscrafts@gmail.com

Oh my word this is so cute and creative! I love angry birds and I even dressed up as the pig for Halloween. I just launched a linky party over at my blog for crafts for and by kids. This idea is just perfect and I'd love to have you share it with us, too! (oh, and there's a give away, as well)
I'm just grinning over how cute those cans are!

AI love this game. I'm going to let my grandkids make it, and then if we all get a different Angry Bird, we can choose which ones we use to try to knock down the pigs! I think it will be a great family game. I featured this on my blog for my Friday Friends! Come on over to By George You've Got It and check it out! Thanks for sharing your cute ideas.

Thanks for sharing! My kids love angry birds and we have a stuffed one. This is a lot simpler than painting each of the faces on the cans. Thanks! I found you via Sugar Bee Crafts.

This is absoluty AMAZING! I have an Angry Bird-Day coming up on April Fool's Day these would be perfect. Are you interested in selling a set of the vinyl's? I would sure love to have my own cameo but I'm a retired crafter and my family would "bomb" me with a bird if I bought more stuff;o)
