Today I have a new diy project I made for the Craft Café column at Heart Handmade UK - Upcycled Tin Can Storage.
I'm always finding new ways to reuse tin cans and give them a new life. I like the idea of crafting and upcycling them.
Gold is my favorite accent color so I sprayed the cans and lids with a metallic gold paint, and mixed and matched papers, tapes, and embellishments to decorate them. Last but not least, I added a round wooden bead to some of the lids to make a handle. Now I can use them to store some of my craft supplies, or to hold some pretty flowers.
This is a very inexpensive way to spruce up any room and give it a personal touch.
If you have some empty tin cans, you should try this project.
After you spray paint inside and outside of the cans and lids in metallic gold, gather what you have on hand to decorate them, like papers, tapes, laces, adhesive embellishments, butons, and so on.
There are so many ways to get creative with these cans. I hope you get inspired by this post and come up with other beautiful ideas to upcycle tin cans.
