I wanted to utilize a old vintage Uncle Ben's Rice tin can I was given. Completely fell in love with the beautiful art nouveau looking motif this tin has on it!

Spray with a clear sealer to protect from the weather.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Large tin can - punch 5 or 6 drainage holes in the bottom   (A friend:) any time can will do..... Vintage is more fun)
  • Chalkboard - paint   (Gel pens in your favorite colors)
  • White carbon paper - or you can get a piece of white chalk and rub the back of your design after you   (Amazon)

      @Hannah V I have a few old cans. I put plastic sacks in them and reuse them for the product that came in them. Very colorful on cupboard.
