We consume so many tins in a year that we could do all these projects in one year, in several colors and even different versions without doing twice the same projects! As long as you can throw all these tin cans into recycling, why not take advantage of them to tinker with them?

Use them as a material you will not need to buy! No expense! Make decorative accessories, practical accessories and even gift ideas! A little paint, some fabrics, old papers, beautiful prints, or beautiful scrapbooking papers, nice handles, and these cans will have a different look!

TIP: For all these ideas, use a can opener that cuts the inside of the box and not the outside, so you avoid cutting yourself.

Get an old board, and old tins of several different sizes, cover them with old papers with Mod Podge glue to make a super wall and practical decoration!
