A decent light reflector will usually cost you $ 20 and up, but if you have a can of Pringles lying around, you can pretty much make one for the cost of a simple flashlight.
This project from WikiHow is really easy to do. Just draw a line across the long end, and two perpendicular lines at either end, so it forms an elongated ‘I’ shape. Cut across these lines to open a ‘door’ into the can.
Next, cut a hole into the lid so that your flashlight fits firmly into it. Attach the lid, switch on the light and you have a cheap DIY reflector! You can even add a paper sheet to diffuse the light.
Moral of the story? A can of Pringles should never be thrown away. It can be a macro photography tube, spaghetti storage, and help keep your paint roller fresh. For step-by-step instructions with photos for the reflector hack, hit the link below.
