Directions for beer/soda can wind spinners?

In my job landscaping I see a lot of yard ornaments but the airplane spinner made out of 2 beer cans is the best. It hangs on a hook under a tree; the prop spins and it also moves with the wind. Adorable. Does anyone have directions for that one? Or any others? Bet these would sell at craft fairs.

Katy, I have never herd of these, but they sounded interesting, so I went searching. Here is a set of directions, but no pic:

I'm hoping a site that Google (in Mozilla) promises mere opening will be "detrimental to your computer" won't be soon. It's http://www.crafterscommunity.com/. And it could be nothing but a ruse. Maybe I need to take my camera to work and post a pic though I didn't see it out last week--shame--it always makes me smile.

And all I wanted were instructions for a stupid can craft. Darn, darn darn! I'm betting they weren't even there! Thanks for researching, crispin.

Thanks for that link! The one I saw only used 2 cans; I don't think it had wheels. But you gave me another search term! I found these 3 free links which all use more cans.

This 1 has 2 sets of directions but no pictures. However, there are "patterns".

This one uses 4 cans but again no pictures

The last uses 3 cans and is more detailed than I want but there is a cute picture.

I didn't see it out when I was working last time but will take my camera in case it's there tomorrow. The people who own it didn't make it I'm sure...possible craft fair item?
