Plenty of us love camping, but for those of us who hate leaving our creature comforts behind, it can be a challenge.
Especially when it comes to chowing down. While building fires and making them last is great if you know how to do so without spending six hours rubbing sticks together when you ultimately forget your lighter, lots of people opt for mini grills and camping stoves to save themselves a few headaches.
But what if I told you that you could reach the same end with an old can? If you want to learn how to recycle, save money, and lighten your camping load all at once, check this out.
First thing's first: Grab a large can of some sort. If you shop in bulk, you probably have a few of these around the house.
You'll also need some wires and a bit of cardboard. You could even use old hangers! Shape them into rectangles and roll some cardboard around one of the short sides.
After that, cut two flaps into the can that you can later roll around the handles.
Use a hammer and nails to punch ventilation holes into the can.
This is what it should look like after that!
Finally, put the handles you created around the flaps. You now have ourself a tin can stove!
Much lighter (and much cheaper) than anything you'd find at Home Depot, am I right?
