Rope Flower Vase
You don't have to be on the beach to have this fun nautical inspired vase. What's even better is that all you need is a hot glue gun and some rope to get started. Add a smaller glass mason jar within your tin can to fill with water and store flowers within it. Find the full details here.
Fill an empty can with rice and water all the way to the top and then freeze it to provide a stable can to indent without collapsing it. Stick your template onto the can and wrap duct tape to the sides of it to hold it in place while you make your holes using a nail and hammer. Afterward defrost the cans in warm water and store your rice again. Once dry, paint over it and then add you mini tea lights within. Get the full instructions here.
If you prefer a different type of wind chime use the lids for a unique look. Make holes at the top and bottom of the lids to attach string and beads to it and use a screw driver to make indentations and designs on each lid. They can even be painted different colors afterward.
Don't buy an expensive bird feeder when you just need a can to make your own. With a few simple cuts and some paint, you'll have the perfect flower shaped feeder for your yard. Get the full instructions here.
Use chalkboard paint to label the outside of the cans and then fill them with your favorite herbs to start a herb collection. Don't forget to make little holes in the bottom of the cans to let water run through. The holes can be made using a hammer and nail.
Make sure the can you are using is BPA-free before using it in the oven. Once you do this is a great way to give gifts for holidays or special occasions, especially if you have a famous recipe everyone loves. To get this banana bread recipe visit here.
Start by using a pop top can and flipping it upside down. You open the bottom of the can, empty its contents and clean the can out. Once clean, spray it with cooking spray, insert your batter halfway into the can and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. To get the full instructions on how to decorate it afterward, visit here. You'll want to remove your baked cake from the can and place the sprinkles and icing on the bottom part of the can (the pop top side) then place your cake back into the can so that the pop top can easily be removed from the top when your loved one receives their cake.
It doesn't get any more affordable than reusing those used tin cans and giving them a whole new look. With a few simple steps they can be turned into great additions to any home or make great gifts for friends and family.
