Recycled Can Caddies

It's easy to come up with some handy storage caddies by recycling tin cans. I decorated a few can with a variety of different things like burlap, decorative paper & Mod Podge, and paint. I added wire handles to some by punching a couple of holes into the sides of the cans to attach the wire through.
This one was finished with decorative paper and Mod Podge. I then attached a decorative clip with twine.
I distressed painted this one with white and a rusty paint. I glued two of my homemade wood buttons on the front and made a handle with bark covered wire.
For a more industrial look, I kept this one mainly silver with a burlap wrap and some silver accents.
