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.

Sharan Lee on Nov 10, 2014Hamilton 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.

Honestly, the real way to use a can opener is to place it on top of the can and not on the sides.
