Tin can storage

I was looking for something to house my arts and craft tits and tats in and was collecting tin cans of different heights because i knew an idea was just out there for me to use. Then i saw this brilliant idea on Pinterest. It was a tin caddy. and it was a brilliantly easy thing to do with my tin cans. So i set out this weekend to do a test run which i will put in my bathroom, hence the combs and hair accessories and makeup brushes.

What you need:

  • empty cleaned tins
  • Spray paint
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Craft glue
  • Modge (optional)

How To:

Spray the tin cans. (what helped me with not getting the spraypaint on everywhere was to first put a plastic grocery bag over my hand and then put the tin can over it and spraypaint. when done just slide it off and all the mess is on the plastic bag. when the can is dry cut scrapbook paper to the desired size you would like it to be on the can. Put craft glue on the scrapbook paper and stick it around the tin can. i think i’ll put a coat of lacquer or modge over it to seal it as it will be in the bathroom.

You can put any embellishments on that you desire to make it pretty.
