Bring your old and empty tins cans to literal new heights by upcycling them into rustic, multi-tiered containers.
They could be used as a serving tray for baked goodies or mini sandwiches to convey a shabby chic aesthetic.
By placing several pieces of gardeners foam around each row and filling in with flowers, these containers create a quaint and charming table centerpiece for parties.
Use them too as a caddy to hold and organize makeup, hair paraphernalia, craft items and other what-nots.
They also make a fun way to display jewelry and other collectible items.
- Different sized tin cans (wide-sized cans such as those used for coffee, ice cream, biscuits or cookies and a couple of vertically oriented ones such as those used for soups, tomato sauce and sardines)
- Putty glue
- Spray paint
Step 1: Stack tin cans. Experiment with the proportions and height. Use larger cans at the bottom.
Step 2: When satisfied with the dimensions of your container, assemble each piece by attaching with putty glue. Let it dry overnight.
Step 3: Spray paint and let dry.
