Milk Can Makeover

2 Materials
5 Minutes

A quick, easy and cheap way to makeover a Milk Can for a holiday!

Wash and clean

First I cleaned the out side of my milk can

T-shirt kids size 14-16

I found this cute t-shirt at my local thrift store for $1. Love those bargains! I was originally going to stuff it and make a pumpkin but when I saw my milk can. The light bulb went off.

Slip the t-shirt over the milk can

Thats right, the t- shirt slips right over the can. It was snug so I didn't need to do anything to make it fit tight. If you you find a larger t-shirt or top tape or binder clips in the back will help to snug the fit. Any sizer smaller than a kids 14-16 it probably won't fit.

Last thing I did was to tie the long sleeves in the back. If the shirt has short sleeves i would just tuck them in like a pocket or leave them alone.

Now to keep an eye out for an Ugly Christmas sweater! Plus other t-shirts for other holidays!
