Scrappy Dressed up Tin Can Craft

There are some recycling supplies that just pile up. Ever since I mentioned to family that I collect bottle caps – I have more bottle caps than I know what to do with! If people find out you collect toilet paper tubes, suddenly you’ll find yourself with a closet full of those. Tin cans are yet another recycled craft staple that tends to pile up around my house, because there are so many fun ways to make a tin can craft! You can use them to make an upcycled scrappy dressed up tin can. These were used as pencil cups and put into goodie bags, but I could totally see these as the goodie bags themselves! Wrap them up in cellophane, and tuck in some small treats – flavored teas, peppermint sticks, small cookies, and you have one sweet treat!

These cans are so pinnable! But be sure to pin from the original source.
