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!
Oh these are so pretty! They remind me of the ones Elyse at Tinkered Treasures makes. We did a swap a few years ago and I received one of her pretty cans!
Very pretty, Sandy. Love the bling. They're a beautiful statement all by themselves, but perfect for storing all sorts of items.
Well it looks like a lot of us have can redos on our minds. Yours are just beautiful.You really did a great job Sandy.
Omgosh I love them so so pretty! I want to make some now too!!!!
SO PRETTY! Love everything about these beautiful and useful cans! You did such a nice job creating them.
Love those. Perfect shabby colors and embellishments! So so pretty!
I love the cans, so pretty yet practical. The bling really takes them up a notch. My favorite is the one with fabric.
We'd love to have you share these at the linky party.
Ohhh, yours turned out so pretty! I love them!!!! xoxo
These are the sweetest little cans ever... the jewelry is the finishing touch! I have some costume jewelry in my mother's memory boxes and I need to see what I can come up with :)
Speaking about Great Grandmas... I just posted about my first Great Grand Baby!
Thanks for sharing this at my party :)

i just LOVE these adorable tins, sandy:) and your grandma's gems make them even more special-happy weekend!
These are just beautiful - but how did you get the glue off the can!
These are just too cute! I have seen a lot of fancy can projects lately and must say that the costume jewelry really adds an extra special touch.
These turned out so pretty! You have inspired me!
These cans are absolutely beautiful! I smiled when you wrote about becoming a great grandmother someday...that's what I want to be.

So pretty, Sandy! I love the embellishments! I can think of so many uses for these.I love the DIY chalk paint!
Absolutely beautiful, I love all:-))
Sandy - they turned out so great! I could see them holding pens on a lovely shabby chic desk (which I am betting you have!)
Such a lovely project! Wow! You made them so beautiful and the pictures are so pretty, the way you arranged everything. Love!
Have a great weekend.
I just love these, I have got to make me some!!!!Hugs, Penny
Oh, those are absolutely adorable, I love grandmas pins!!!
A fun, cute and frugal creation!
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my Table for Two post!
These are so adorable and I love the shabby colors you chose to decorate them with. What fun decor to place around the home :)
Love those little cans....so cute and best of all practical!!! The bling you added was the perfect crowning touch! Have a great weekend!!!!!
Such a fun post...your cans turned out SO pretty! The funny thing about your comment about your grandchildren someday remembering cans looking like this is that I remember decorating soup cans for my grandmother when I was a child...only we used macaroni instead of bling!
Have a great weekend!
I love this idea! I would have never thought to adhere the fabric with spray starch..such a good idea..sounds easier to work with than glue.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Oh how cute!!! I can think of so many good uses for these!!
They look perfect Sandy and I adore the aqua and pink colour scheme.
I'd love it if you'd consider sharing this over at my Shabbilicious Friday Link party - http://shabbyartboutique.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/shabbilicious-friday-link-party-july_27.html
