Recycled Tin Can


You can save this label to your computer and print them for your own use.
I made my labels 2'' x 3'' - 9 labels can print at this size.
I just printed 6 on off- white paper.
I wanted the labels to fit a tin can approximately 3'' high and 2'' wide.
Carefully cut apart the labels.


Remove the paper store labels from the can.
 Matte- Mod Podge
available at Dollar Tree
Use a small brush or sponge brush to paint Mod Podge on the
back side of your label. Attach to the side of can.
Then cover label with another layer of Mod Podge.
Let dry.
 I used a drill at opposite sides so I could add a make a handle.
 Cut a piece of bailing wire about 12''
Using pliers curl ends that will go into the side holes.
Wrap around a pencil and slip off.
Hook ends on to can.
Fill with candy.
I purchased the Peanut Butter Kisses from The  Dollar Tree.
You can embellish your cans with ribbon or jute if you like.
These are nice to have on hand for party favors.
 I plan to make a few for table d├ęcor at my Holiday Boutique in November.

Blessings to you,

  9. What a darling idea Lisa! Love the repurposing of the tin cans into a fun piece of decor! I like to save my tin cans, spray paint them and plant succulents in them. Now, maybe I will use printed labels on the cans instead! Great tutorial :)
