Repurposed Tin Cans

I love giving new life to things that normally go into the trash, like these repurposed tin cans. Repurposed tin cans make great succulent planters, pencil holders, or even storage containers for a craft room.

Start out by painting your tin cans, and distressing them.

Start decorating them with diamond wrapped ribbon, or any other ribbon of your choice.

Or add some burlap around the center of the cans. Embellish the cans with whatever you have on hand. Or stencil some wording onto the cans.

Either way they turn out super cute, and make great storage containers, pencil holders, planters, or fill them with a treat and give as gifts.
