Tin Can Tool Caddy

Made this for .25 using things I had on hand, and a yard sale find. Not just for utensils, but craft supplies and for kids crayons and markers. Choose a color to match your decor, or think about solid white to go with everything.

Give everything a coat of primer. Check the blog for hints on getting cans ready to use.

Then paint. Use a good paint, usually 2 coats.

Fit onto cutting board. I left space between the 2 rows for napkins since they always want to blow away. I used hot glue to attach the cans to the board.

    This project is very nicely done, and looks "handmade" not "homemade" or "granny". The presentation is very nice as well, the colors really look good for your photo shoot.

    I did this earlier & used zebra print "Duck Tape" to cover the cans. When I tried another project w/ my utensils, I disposed the original ones. I will try this again, using the board. I like the painting idea.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
