I love homemade spaghetti sauce and I have a great recipe from my Mom that I make every few months. I like to buy the big cans at Sams Club and freeze it for a quick fix meal. I decided to reuse the cans. I washed them out and let them air dry. There are so many different routes you can go with these. You can spray paint them, you can wrap scrapbooking paper around them, wrap jute around them, or do what I did and use fabric. I also made a small marker holder using a small can that holds either fruit or veggies. This is FINALLY my last project for my craft room and I will hopefully show you pictures of it tomorrow.
Embellishments of your choice
Take the paper off of your cans and wash them out. Using a tape measure, measure around your can to decide how long you need your fabric to be. Measure the height of your can too. My can was about 20 inches all the way around.
Paint a layer of modge podge on your can and place your fabric on top. Make sure to smooth your fabric down as you go.
Once your fabric is smooth, apply a thin layer of modge podge on top of your fabric.
( Don't worry...it dries clear! )
After your fabric is dry, apply a contrasting band strip. You can use modge podge again or use small amount of hot glue to hold the strip in place.
Pinch your two end pieces together and hot glue in place.
Hot glue your buttons on.
On two of the other cans, I just added a small yellow ribbon. My craft room is simple...which I love!
Here is the marker can I made using a small can. I did the same process with the fabric. I also added some jute to the top and bottom of the can
