Step 6--Attaching the Buttons

I thought this step was the only difficult part of the project. I drilled two small holes into the can for each button. It was threading the wire through the holes that was difficult. Once threaded I just twisted the wire tight with a pair of small pliers.
For the lid I threaded the wire from the outside of the lid, through the holes and through the fiber. I then just pierced the fiber button through the wires and twisted tight with the pliers. I trimmed the long ends with a pair of wire cutters. This was a lot easier than threading from the inside out.
