This is a quick, cheap and easy decoration for a garden or imaginative play with a Barbie or G.I. Joe doll.
After you have a few sticks glued down, put the rubber band around bottom but a bit towards the center of the can and slide the remaining sticks around the can until all are in place.
Add a dab of glue to the underside of each stick (you will have to lift it up a bit) to secure it to the can. Slide the other rubber band on the can and adjust both so one is more towards the top and the other more towards the bottom.
