This year we are focusing on being a little more green in our walk on this earth. I have been using, reusing, and upcycling items that come my way. Join us as we support Earth month!

DIY Upcycled Tin Can Organizers
The first thing you need to do is gather supplies.
You will need fabric, tin cans (any size), scissors, sponge brush, and modge podge.
First, lay the fabric out flat. Place your can on top of it, along an edge, like in the picture below. Sometime, I will make it a 1/4 an inch bigger just to make sure I have enough fabric. We can cut any extra off later. I’ll show you how. Make a cut to mark your measurement.
Just make a little snip for now.
Next, roll the fabric around the can, and make another snip, like in the picture below. Remove the can, and finish the cuts. Then, you will have the perfect size of fabric for your can.
Brush a little bit of glue on the can, like in the picture below.
Place the fabric on the can like so… Start brushing modge podge on the fabric, lining up the fabric on the can as you go all the way around. I like to line up the straightest edge around the top and cut off any extra off on the bottom.
Here is what it looks like when it’s done…
If there is extra fabric on the bottom, just cut it off, like so…
Allow these to dry for 24 hours before use. Then, fill them with whatever you want to. I am currently using some of mine at my desk filled with pens, pencils, and I have small cans for thumbtacks, and rubber bands.
I have also been using them in the bathroom to hold the toothpaste, toothbrush, jewelry, and other knick-knacks.
My favorite thing about upcycling these tin cans is that you can use any fabric you want and match your decor with ease! Unless, you have ugly wallpaper to compete with like I do, lol. My bathroom colors are yellow and grey, despite the many colors in the wallpaper, these pretty fabric covered tin cans match the decor!
What kind of upcycling project are you working on?
