    Cover it with Contact or Paint.

  • Paint it, mod podge it with fabric or paper, embellish, cover in contact paper. I would glue or screw on a decorative knob on top.

    Decorate it the way you wish to go with your décor and you should be able to store coffee, tea bags, anything dry that needs a tight cover to stay fresh. Pasta, cookies, candy, whatever you want. You could use it to store pens, pencils, any number of things.

    Put stuff in it:) Wallah, it's stored! HAHAHA Actually, I like the way it looks, kind of kitschy. If you must do something, you can get some contact paper from the dollar store. Measure the length and width you want and cut that amount out. Make the length at least 1/2" longer so you won't have an open seam. Place one end of the paper onto the can and be very careful when you wrap it around the can so that it doesn't shift. Put a knob on top and you should be good to go.

    I would paint it a bright color and store raisins in it.

    Dfm has asked the right question, as, if the container is more of a cardboard, or has a cardboard liner, it will be impossible to completely remove the residual oil from the cookies. It will eventually go rancid, and, will be absorbed by whatever you are storing inside.
    Sometimes also, depending on the porosity of the plastic, similar containers originally used in the sale of food containing any fat, will retain oil particles as well, and will therefore also be unsuitable for storing anything else that for the same reason.

    You could spray paint it, chalk paint it or decopage it. Plenty of options. Washi or patterned duck tape would work too.

    i know where there ar Amish dry goods stores....emphasize the dry. The goods are packaged in plastic bags..a bit flimsy. I collect suitable contaniers to put them in. My house hold is me and 3 cats...hard to cook for 1. With the dried goods I can make 1 portion or 20.

  • Betsy Betsy on Apr 03, 2018
    Ummm, candy! :) Well, it depends on what you need stored or contained. Maybe pencils, coins, candy, buttons, screws, did I mention candy? You can put a glass in it and use it to display a few flowers. The glass can hold the water without ruining the container, and, of course, you can put jelly beans in it:) But, I like to keep jelly beans in clear glass bottles. Oh, did I say you could put candy in it? You can!

    I would store sewing notions, buttons, wine bottle corks, paper clips, glass beads or marbles, basically any craft supplies or office supplies. You can also use it for personal care items like bobby pins, barrettes, rubber bans. Finally, make a First Aid kit out of it -- hold band-aids, tape, tweezers, scissors, ointment, etc. OH ONE MORE! Make a beach/pool kit - store lip balm, sun block, bug spray, wet wipes for sandy feet. The options are endless!

    I have access to Amish dry goods store...the Amish don’t use modern fridges, cars etc.the goods are dry...think instant soup. They come in thin plastic bags...I save containers to fill with the dry goods, I can peel the label off the bag and put it on another sturdier container. I can make single servings o
    f soup, left overs.

    This looks like the right size for bracelets to me, especially the rubber bracelets with messages on them. ☺️

      Having some right now! Yum, it's really good, thanks. I, too, collect recipes and read cook books like they are novels. Just me and 1 cat, so I know how hard it is hard to cook for 1. I'm also a vegetarian, 16 years, and thought I'd lose weight by not eating meat. But, when I found out that cookies, cakes and pies don't contain meat, I was in second heaven. A bit pudgy, but happy:) Thanks for the recipe!
