I am so excited to be sharing this recycled project with you today – these were seriously so much fun to make! Fabric-wrapped tin cans will soon become your newest obsession! Start saving up your tin cans people!!
I got this cute cart from IKEA that I’d been eying forever! I needed some storage options that were cute so I thought about wrapping the tin cans in fabric, rather than just spray painting them! I didn’t spend a dime on this project because I went straight to my fabric stash and used some of my scraps.
For the fabric-wrapped tin cans, just peel off the wrappers and wash the cans out and let dry.
All you need is Modpodge to adhere the fabric to the cans. Just apply a generous amount directly to your can with a brush then wrap the pre-cut fabric around it.
So, so easy and only takes a few minutes. I am thinking these would be fun to wrap gifts in, what do you think?! Will you be making any fabric-wrapped tin cans?!
On another note: I have thought and thought about other fun things I can do with my cart. Since I don’t have a craft room, this cart is sitting in my pantry but is definitely serving it’s purpose! I have all my sewing tools sitting on it right now and paper, and junk.
Besides just serving a purpose as a craft cart, I have also thought about making it into a cute side table in my kitchen with cute plants on it and some picture frames. I love this idea but that would totally defeat the purpose I bought it for: Craft Storage! Maybe I need two of them, haha! Do you have one? What do you use it for? I would love to hear your ideas!
