Can Lid Christmas in July

Here is a little Christmas idea made from can lids. Sneaking this Christmas in July in at the last moment.
This little project was so fun and easy. I mentioned to you that I have been collecting cans, well I have been saving lids as well. I have one of those smooth edge can openers that doesn't leave a sharp edge on the lid or can.
While decorating and cleaning the house, I would stop for a few minutes and paint a coat of bright white enamel paint on both sides of the lids. I started out with a cheap brand of spray paint that just didn't cut it, so I whipped out the Rust-Oleum and it worked great! It did take a few coats because I wanted them shiny and bright.
Theses shiny hefty stickers from Hobby Lobby were perfect for this project. They were placed in the center of the inner circle.

    Hamilton beach makes a can opener that cuts the can open so there are NO sharp edges on the lid or the can. Hubby got one last winter at wmart. So I have been saving the lids and some cans all year. All the smooth edges make them great for kids crafts. Love this idea.
