Instead Of Throwing Away Cans, Woman Shows A Whole New Purpose That Can Help Everyone
FaithTap Staff 2/3/2016
Do you have a tendency of throwing away tin cans after they've been used? To most people cans appear to be trash - but that's far from the truth!
With a little outside-the-box type of thinking these plain ol' cans can actually be transformed into useful storage containers that can help keep you organized and give your home a little extra spunk!
The Perfect Papered Solution
With a little mod podge and some creativity, you can turn your favorite cooking book pages, scrapbooks, magazine or whatever other printed page into an antique-feeling storage container!
After they dry, use a hot glue gun to attach the cans to a stained piece of wood and use them for whatever you want! These look great holding utensils in the kitchen, storing flowing on the table or in the bedroom keeping your makeup brushes nice and neat!
The sky's the limit when it comes to this amazing craft idea!
If your desk is always cluttered and you can never find space to actually do your work, try this fantastic upcycle! All you need to do is glue four or five empty containers onto a flat piece of wood - and, once the glue is dry, give the entire thing several even coats of spray paint!
After the spray paint is dry and good to go, you can store scissors, pens, pencils, tacks or whatever else is taking up space, in each compartment!

Arts and crafts time is fun, but it can sure be messy! But not anymore, when you make this helpful organizational tin can tool for your own home - but beware, you're going to need power tools for this one!
First, go to the home improvement store and grab an S-hook for each of the tin cans you plan to use. You'll also need a towel rack that can fit all of the tin cans horizontally.
Once you get home, use a drill to make a hole under the top lip of each can. Sand the hole down and run the S-hook through it. Lastly, install the towel rack and hang the cans along it - now you can get those arts and crafts supplies up and out of the way!
There are very few good-looking pet food storage options out there. They're either clunky, misshapen or can barely fit a handful of food, let alone an entire bag! Luckily, there's a fun and easy way to turn your pet's food storage container from an eyesore to something beautiful.
All you need is the decorative holiday popcorn canisters, a stencil and a can of matte spray paint! First, you need to clean out the inside of the can thoroughly. Then, lay the stencil down and give the outside of the can an even coat of the matte spray paint - you can use any color you'd like!
Once the paint dries, fill the canister full of food and keep it hidden away or out in plain sight! Now you don't have to feel ashamed of people seeing your dog food storage!
Our hairstyling tools take up so much space in cabinets and shelves! Now you can remove one of the most oddly shaped items, hairbrushes, and store them in a way that actually makes sense!
Grab a can opener and remove both the top and bottom of the tin cans you plan to use. Then wrap (or paint) the outside of the cans with a fun color or design. Once the paint or glue has dried, take a Command strip and apply it to the back of the can.
Press the other side of the strip against your cabinet or wall to hang the cans securely! Now you can store your brushes neatly, without hair getting everywhere and falling all over the place!
