Looking for a pretty place to stash small kitchen items or herbs? Create cute, custom utensil holders with a few recycled tin cans. Spray paint and craft tape will gussy them up, and S-hooks will keep them hanging in place on a towel bar.
The Advent calendar is made with recycled cans. Make sure to completely clean the cans before you use them for the project. First, spray-paint the outside of the cans. Once they're dry, drill holes in the sides of the cans near the top. Take the pieces of wire and stick each end through the holes in the cans, bending the wire so that it creates a handle. Add a spiral on the each end of the wire by wrapping it around a pencil. The white-vinyl numbers in the pictures were cut on a Silhouette machine, but any set of numbered stickers would work.
These adorable treat cans make upcycling look good! Kids will love making these cans as much as they will devouring their sweet contents, so start saving your empty tin cans now so you'll have plenty of raw materials for this kid-pleasing craft.
Sleek white cabinets with linear drawer pulls pair with dark wood upper cabinets and shelving in this bright contemporary kitchen. A trio of plants in tin cans adorn the waterfall countertop, while a brown backsplash adds texture to the neutral space.
The keynote feature in this pub-style dining room is the integrated bar with restaurant quality beer taps that can serve up to four different craft beers. Historic character is added with stamped-tin ceiling tiles, while a statement-making chandelier adds an elegant touch.
No party decor is complete without fresh-cut flowers. For this look, choose dual-toned ranunculus and pink peonies, place them in painted tin cans and bud vases. Spray each can in two colors using painter's tape. Cobalt bud vases with single stems pop wonderfully against the black-and-white striped.
