Hi you all! Today I will share with you a very simple recycle project, hope you like it 💕

I like eating tuna and can not throw away the cans as I am a real diy and recycle lover :) 

So, I started my project with 2 empty tuna cans.

I had an old bamboo placemat, I cut the it long enough to cover the affixed metal cans.

I glued them together with rapid adhesive which is definitely my favorite adhesive for crafts.

The craft is so nice even this way. You may use it as a succulent pot, a candleholder or a little organizer for paperclips and so on and on.

But, I did not stop it here because I devided to make a kitchen storage with a lid.


I used a mason jar’s lid, that is probably available at all kitchens ☺️

 I painted the lid black using chalk paint. you may also use multisurface paint for coloring it.

Then comes the twist. I wanted a fancier lid, so I painted a pingpong ball black and glued it to the black colored jar lid.

As finishing touches, I added some little decoration for my new boho storage. I used a non slip rug pad for this purpose. 

You may cut it any shape you like and color it.

I again painted it black and really love the way it looks.

So, this is the end of this little tutorial. I would be so happy to read what you think about this boho kitchen storage. Would you give it a try?

    So you must take both ends off one can then?

    Why not use one larger can? I don’t understand why you’re gluing 2 tuna cans together- doesn’t that leave a lot of wasted space?
