February Film DIY

Check out this super simple, super functional film canister photo stand. It only takes a few minutes and it’ll definitely spice up your room!

You’ll need these materials:
  • 35mm film canisters- however many stands you’d like to make (one canister makes one holder)
  • Box cutter
  • magnets, small enough to fit inside of the film canisters (two magnets for every photo holder)
  • Super glue
  • A writing utencil
  • A cardboard box

1. Take the box cutter and cut one canister all the way around the middle. Try to make it as straight as possible but it doesn’t need to be perfect.

2. Cut off a section of the box and trace the inside of the canister on the cardboard. Cut out the circles and repeat this step until you have about ten pieces, you will need enough to fill both sides of the canister.

3. You’ll need to fill up each side of the canister with the cardboard circles. Put a dot of super glue on the bottom of each side and place a circle on top. Continue putting glue on each piece until each sides are filled nearly to the top.

4. Lastly, glue one magnet to each side of the canister. Make sure that the sides of the magnets that face out are opposites so they will stick together.

You’re done! Just place your picture between the two magnets and... walah!
