Got Coffee Cans?

Create Decorative Storage.

This is a quick storage idea using coffee cans
covered with decorative papers.
I copied my sheet of decorative paper onto card stock for a heavier weight.
Next, I measured the size and used adhesive roller tape on
the back of the papers before adhering to the can.

By the way, this can was a straight design without the indention you find on tin cans. 

They had snap on plastic lids in a neutral color.
To those I hot glued large fabric flowers with center glittered buttons.

That's it, fill it up with craft supplies, sewing items, buttons
and the list goes on.

We can all use extra storage containers.
And  basically free, with the cans I would have thrown away.

Got any coffee cans hanging around.
Wrap with pretty paper, top the lid and fill it up!!

See you next time.
~Have a Happy Summer Day~

Good Morning, Celeste. These look great; what a clever idea. It seems I am always in search of ways to organize small items.
I hope you have a blessed weekend.

Very nice idea Celeste...I love it! I can think of someplace I could use this idea myself. I'd love to have some of those on one side of my desk!

Have a beautiful weekend.

Your cans look amazing...good idea.

Donna said...

What a fun idea, Celestina! I love projects that begin with items we normally might just throw away. The paper is perfect, and I just love the polka dotted flowers!

Very cute idea! Great idea for crafters too for some of that stuff that builds up! That's what I call thinking outside the "box" or the "can"! LOL... Have a great weekend!

You are so good. Your work is not only pretty and creative, but well-executed! If I tried this, I assure you it would be crooked! OH how I enjoy watching your work take shape, Celeste!

You know I absolutely love these, Celeste. Simple and beautiful, what's not to love? :) I've been adding a lot of color to my creative space preparing for Karen's blog party, but you know how much I love neutrals.
Your tomato pepper cheese salad is a perfect poolside dish. I think I'll try out that combination this weekend. :)
Have a beautiful one, friend.

Love this storage idea! It's all about recycling and upcycling to help us and the environment. These treasure cans are a perfect solution for all of us!! Nice look for your storage Celeste. The possibilities are endless.

I'm collecting some containers from large cashew containers (the only treat I get on this new way of eating designed by Russ) to makeover into studio storage. Will hopefully be sharing soon.

Our blog has been a bit neglected due to all going on at Golden Pond but will be doing a new post soon!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas with all of us!!

Love & blessings, Edie

Your cans are so pretty now, Celeste! I have done something similar with wallpaper on tin cans and lace edging at the top.
Farmhouse hugs!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I LOVE this, Celeste! Cans never looked so good! : ) I have that paper, too, and just love it. I've used it sparingly because I love it so much, but then thought what am I saving it for!

Patty @ That's So Pretty said...

Brenda Pruitt said...

I love this! Right up my alley. Coffee and vintage papers.

That's a fun idea. And the lingering coffee scent is good for whatever you store inside! Happy weekend my friend! Hugs, Diane

I love pretty!! I'm not a coffee drinker...wonder what other kind of cans I might have that I can decorate. Great idea to use them for storage. I would love to have some of these in my sewing/craft room.

What a great idea. You always come up with the best decorations ever.
I love the cans and you would never know they are coffee cans. i am going to have to start using coffee that comes in a can. Starbucks is in bags, darn it. What brand do you use?
Have a happy weekend.

Those are beautiful! Besides storage, they would also just be great for decoration. I can just see them on the top of my kitchen cabinets!

Happy weekend.
