Who feeds their kids Campbell's soup for lunch when it is 85 degrees? I do! Well you know...I needed a can and the recycling had just been picked up. :) They had some canned peaches too.
I had seen this project done at Fox Hollow Cottage. Shannon did a really cute can and a painted Tequila bottle. I am looking for the perfect bottle to try that too:)
The hardest part of this project was getting the glue from the label off the can! Then I just painted the can with homemade chalk paint and sanded a little. I added some embellishments and Viola! I had these adorable little cans.
I thought for fun I would put fabric on the largest one...I adhered it with spray starch.
I'm thinking these would look so pretty with flowers in them. Also, I thought I could use them to put paintbrushes in..or pencils and pens...there are so many uses! They would be cute packaging for a gift too.
What makes these even more special to me is that the jewels I hot glued on them were my Grandmothers. My Grandma was an Avon lady and I love all the costume jewelry I have from her!
Such a fun sweet project. Thanks for inspiring me Shannon! I hope I have inspired someone too:). I am just tickled pink with them. I envision the future when my great Grandchildren are looking at these and saying.."Remember when cans looked like that, and Great Grandma Sandy made things with them!"
Thanks for visiting!
