Then drilled through the cans and leather into the board at an angle to make pilot holes. Then attached the decorated cans on the board with screws.

    I really like this idea. I can put those too small belts to use. 😁

    Great use of cans and old belts. would make a great gift. I'll be making a few of these. I will add a magnet to the bottom of the tuna cans, that will help keep the screws in.
