This tin man is at my Grandma's house. I didn't ask, but I imagine she made it herself, because she's all crafty. I took some photos while we were in WV last month, because I thought the tin man was pretty cool and looked simple to make. He's made entirely out of items you use at home : 3 different sizes of tin cans, sardine cans, oil funnel, pop bottle lids, cardstock, pop cans, bolts, silver paint, and black paint.
First here's a photo of the complete tin man.
His feet and legs are made of tin cans - soup or fruit/vegetable cans and sardine cans on the bottom. His lower legs and feet are in these two photos.
Upper legs can be seen here. You'd need two sardine cans for his feet. Four soup cans for his legs.
All the cans are put together by silver bolts in the sides as seen in this next photo.
His arms consist of a soup can for the upper arm and a pop can for the lower arm. The pop can is painted silver to match the rest of the tin man.
His chest is made of a large can - like those huge cans of vegetables you can buy at Sam's Club. There are also three pop bottle tops painted black for buttons on his chest, and a red piece of cardstock cut out for his heart.
His head is a slightly larger can than a regular soup can - probably like a large peaches can. Can lids cut in half make up his ears and cans were cut and formed to make his noes and mouth. There are also two more pop bottle lids painted silver for his eyes and one of those oil funnel painted silver for his head.
The tops of some lids where body parts would be visible were left on - in the case of his shoulders for example.
Again the complete tin man would look like this.
I think that pretty much covers it. If anyone has any particular questions, ask and I'll fill you in. I thought he was really cute.
