Find a tin can the right diameter for the holder you want to make. Cat food cans or small fruit cans are a good size. Remove the label and top from the can and clean it thoroughly. Let dry. Cut out the bottom of the can. If it is rough, try smoothing with sandpaper or with your scissors. Otherwise you can cover it. Paint or cover the can with paper or cloth. Insert paper napkins or rolled cloth napkins. You can also glue on decorations, a monogram, etc.
