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.

    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.
