How to unclog a spray can

Occasionally the nozzle on a used can of spray paint can get clogged and stop working. A quick and easy solution is to pour a small amount of mineral turpentine into a bucket, then remove the nozzle from the top of the can and place it in the bucket. After about three minutes, remove the nozzle, dry it off and reattach it to the spray can. Shake the can well then give it a spray, with the blockage gone your paint should come out no problem at all.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Cut the trellis to size
2 Cut the webbing
3 Seal the ends of the webbing
4 Drill holes in the webbing
5 Crimp the eyelets
6 Attach the memo board to the wall
7 Decorate your memo board
  • Step 1. Cut the trellis to size

    Clamp the trellis to your workbench to secure it. Use the bolt cutters to cut the trellis into the shape and the size that you want. Make sure that you trim off any leftover ends. You can also use a pair of pliers to make the ends clean and tidy.
  • Step 2. Cut the webbing

    Measure and mark two lengths of webbing to hang the wire mesh. You can make the webbing any length you like. Once you’ve measure and marked it, cut the webbing with scissors.
  • Step 3. Seal the ends of the webbing

    Place the webbing under a timber offcut, with one end sticking out. Use a heat gun to seal the ends to prevent them from fraying. You’ll need to do this for all ends of the webbing. Make sure you wear a dust mask when doing this because the webbing is made of plastic.
  • Step 4. Drill holes in the webbing

    Find the centre point for your two holes on each piece of webbing. This is where the eyelets will go. Transfer these measurements onto a timber offcut. Then clamp the webbing between the offcuts with the measurements on top to brace it. Use the 6mm drill bit and drill slowly through the timber where you’ve marked so that the webbing doesn’t snag on the drill bit. You’ll need to do this for all four holes in the webbing.
  • Step 5. Crimp the eyelets

    Place eyelets in the four holes in the webbing you’ve made. Use a crimping tool to crimp the eyelets firmly in place.
  • Step 6. Attach the memo board to the wall

    We’ve spray painted the head of our fixing bolts black to blend in with the webbing. Then use the appropriate fixings to attach the memo board to your wall with the webbing. We used 65mm batten screws that went into the wall studs. If you have plaster walls use hollow wall anchors to secure.
  • Step 7. Decorate your memo board

    Once you’ve hung your memo board you can start putting photos, inspirational quotes, postcards and your children’s artwork on it. It looks great and the best part is you made it yourself.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
