10 El Pato Can crafts to make

Here are some super impressive El Pato can crafts you’ll appreciate. Some you’ll want to make for yourself, others are to inspire you to add color, texture, and spice to your life. There are three types of El Pato sauces to buy: Red, yellow and green.

If you decide to make any of these, know that if you plan to cut or drill into the cans, use gloves and goggles. The cans are very thick. Wow, I just realized I really should share some recipes of what to make with the sauces! Putting that next on my list!
