DIY Film Canister Room Divider

If you’ve done all these tipsters with film canisters and for some reason, still have an ungodly amount left over, here’s a new project for you!

For some rooms and most apartments, you’ll need a room divider. It’s not expensive by any means, but it’s not exactly aesthetic either. This tipster isn’t the most practical one out there to do, but doing so shows a commitment to recycling, upcycling, and the analogue lifestyle!

Materials:

  • More than 1,000 film canisters. Beg and cajole your friendly neighborhood labs!
  • Steel rods
  • A drill or a big, sturdy needle – basically something to poke holes in the canister

Instructions:

  1. Plan first how tall you want the divider to be and lay it out on paper or on your computer.
  2. Poke 2 holes on the canister. One on the far left and on the far right.
  3. Alternating between the left and right holes, thrust the rods in the canisters.
  4. Rinse and repeat until you have your desired height and width!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
