That actually looks pretty good ... just not sure how well it would hold up.

My husband and I were looking at fences for our new house. The neighbors on one side of us have a 6' chainlink fence with privacy slats woven into it. I personally don't care for a chainlink fence. The remind me of prison (not that I have ever been there - lol). Any way, while look at fencing, we came across something different to weave into chainlink fences. It looks like green Xmas tree garland! lol! I guess it is supposed to fool people into thinking you have a hedge. I thought of toomuchglass's redneck idea when I saw that.

I left a soda can out for a year in the sun and unprotected to see how it would do. It faded, that is all. This fence is in the shade.It should hold the color for a few years. It was alot of work cutting all the cans flat,but I am happy with it.

Atokadawn, amazing! How did you attach the cans? And what tips do you have re cutting, etc. Love it. Could you get another picture maybe closer up?

I bent the cans around the fence wires so they would hold themselfs on the fence. Cutting them was not hard with a OLD pair of sissors. I found a pair of cotton gloves did help keep the blisters down some. Make sure to let all your friends know you need cans.lol

At 1st I thought you had stacked empty cartons!!LOL. Glad it is cans, they will last much longer. It really looks nice!! You should send pic to your favorite soda maker & maybe they will give you a gift certificate for their sodas!! All that "free" advertising! Jan

Oh geez, I thought it was boxes! Doh! Cans will last a long time outside. I had an aunt and uncle with a farm. They threw all their cans in a giant pile. I wouldn't be surprised if that pile still existed today! lol

I like it, atokadawn!
