Prom Tuxedo Made From Coke Cans!

can-suit-4.jpgQuite an amazing accomplishment. Like the fun Duct Tape fashions it shows a great way to express your personal creativity. This guy had a can drive where he and his friends collected the cans he needed and then he crushed and shaped and stitched them into a vest, bow-tie and suit jacket. He even created a corsage for his date! Check out all of his pictures here.

Other fun can sites:

  • Lots of fun can crafts on Family Crafts, About.com
  • Canstruction, amazing site of large sculptures made from cans
  • Red Bull, Art Of The Can Contest
  • Prom “Fan Art”
