Who remembers playing skittles as a child? Every Christmas when we would go and visit my Grandparents in country Victoria, the family would come together and we would have a family game afternoon. It would always be stinking hot and there would be cricket, lawn bowls, quoits,  lawn badminton and tin skittles. The tin skittles were made from the old tomato soup cans that my Granny would use in her delicious cooking. This was always one of my most favourite games and decided to recreate it for our wedding when my hubby and I got married for some lawn games. Sharing how I made these Vintage Tin Can Skittle Outdoor Game.

Supplies needed:

  • 9 Tin Cans – You need to make sure they are all the same size.
  • Fusion Mineral Casement
  • Paint Brush
  • Lace – To make it look old I dunked it in a coffee and water mix and then dried it in the oven on low.
  • Jute
  • Glue Gun
  • 120 grit sander
  • 2 x tennis balls
  • Scrap Fabric

Step 1 –  Make sure that all of the tins are clean and dry. Paint your tins giving them 2 coats and letting them dry in between.

Step 2– Once they are all completely dry use your sander to distress.

Step 3 –  Cut all of the lace into lengths so that they overlap slightly and the front of the tins. Glue down. Wrap jute around, centre and tie a bow at the front and use the glue gun to secure the bow.

Step 4 – Rip strips of material that you would like to cover the tennis balls in. Glue one end down and wrap around the tennis ball until completely covered.

  1. What a fun idea! I guess skittles is like bowling in the US…what a perfect lawn game. And I love how you made the game pieces so charming with the fabric and paint.

    thanks for the great idea.

    Hugs, Lynn
