Fourth of July Challenge: DIY Altoids Mini-BBQ
Happy Independence Day!
Today Americans focus on two things that they love more than anything else: eating food and blowing stuff up.
We know you’re probably spending the last day of your long weekend playing outside or hanging out with friends and family, but just in case you’re looking for something to do, we’ve got a fun and easy Fourth of July challenge for you.
Not only is the end result adorable and perfect for roasting mini-marshmallows, it’s a great way to create and upcycled item from something you might have otherwise thrown away!
Altoids sours tin
4x 1.5″ sheet metal screws with wide heads (or 4x washers to match)
8x nuts to thread on screws
70mm metal computer fan guard (similar style to the one shown)
92mm metal computer fan guard (similar style to the one shown)
Dremel tool with cutting wheel
Drill with bit slightly bigger than screws
Pliers/Needle nose pliers
Safety goggles and gloves
If any Insteaders attempt to make this little BBQ this summer, we’d love to see the end result! Please post pictures on our Facebook page!
