1. If you like, paint the can in the same color as the straws and let dry before continuing. Otherwise, the straws can be glued directly onto the can.
2. Cut the straws to fit the height of the can.
3. Using the hot glue gun, glue the first straw on the can and then continue with the rest of the straws until the can is completely covered.
An alternative for younger kids, instead of using hot glue is to use a wide and strong double sided sticky tape. Wrap tape around the can and adhere the straws to it.
