Organizador de Materiales de Manualidades Reusando Latas de Leche

I’ve seen this kind of crafts with so many pics on Pinterest and also in so many ways that I was in love with the idea. I knew I would have the opportunity to make it in some point =D and I did yayyyy! He visto esta manualidad en tantas fotos en Pinterest y en tantas formas que me había enamorado de esta idea. Sabía que se me presentaría la oportunidad en algún momento de hacerlo, y la tuve yupiiiii!

I collected many milk tin cans from my daughter’s first year to reuse them in some way and suddenly I said “OMG I can do it with these cans!” LOL. Guardé muchas latas de leche de mi hija durante su primer año para reusarlas en alguna cosa y de repente me dije “OMG Puedo hacer esa ida con estas latas!” jajaja.

Here I’m sharing how I made my Craft Storage upcycling my daughter’s milk cans LOL.

What you need:

  • Tin cans
  • Spray paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbons

1

Clean the cans well and paint the cans in white first.

2

Then paint with the color of your choice, I chose green and light violet.

3

I made a cut out of some flowers with my Silhouette and spray painted some of the cans in white.

4

Essembling and decoration

5

Join 3 cans with ribbons making eights and gluing every now and then. I applied2 loops of ribbon.

6

Glue and secure the spaces between cans with hot glue. You might need to wait until one coat dries to apply another so it doesn’t break apart.

7

Put together the rest of the cans doing the same process above.

8

Then secure the whole structure with a decorative ribbon in the front.

9

…and in the back too.

10

Cut the ribbon left leaving some strips left.

11

Cut some small strips of ribbon and tight them with a knot to the front ribbon.

TADAAAAA Readdy to use!

How does it look???

My work station is getting better, isn’t it? Love it!

So, What do you think? I love hearing your thoughts!

    Cami, I love these; such a cute idea! And love that you repurposed the cans. You’re inspiring me to get in there and finish unpacking my craft area.:) Thanks so much for sharing on Inspire Me Wednesday. Featuring you in next week’s issue.
