Tin Can Tool Caddy

19,528 Views
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.
Fill and enjoy.
A few hints and more details on by blog.

      @Hannah V This red paint has become one of my favorites.

    I was wondering if you glued the cans on to the cutting board? I love this idea! The handle makes it easy to carry and everything you need is all there.

      @Rosemary Palmer This is a great idea. Hot glue is not a permanent fix especially if it gets hot. E6000 would be a better choice unless you would want to take the cans off at a later date.

      @Judy Denesha These are so easy and cheap, could do in multiple colors. The red and yellow match my porch and deck.
