1. DIY storage:
Put some pretty scrapbook or contact paper on those cans and use them for storage. I use the black and white cans in my crafting cabinet to hold scissors, Sharpies and paint pens, and even a contact paper-covered Oatmeal can for storing pipe cleaners.
2. Turn them into decor!
I found these great printable vintage can labels on Pinterest, and I printed several of them off on our printer. Wrap them around your cans and you've got some "antique" cans you can display! I am going to ask the cafeteria at my school if they'll give me one of the large cans so I can wrap a pretty label around it and use it as a vase.
3.Candle holders/tea lights
I didn't do this one, but I may try it soon- I'd love to make these tea light holders for our porch this coming summer!

4. Seasonal decor:
I didn't make this one either, but I'd like to. Here are some cute seasonal craft ideas you can make from tin cans.
And how cool is this advent calendar?
Have you made any neat things with tin cans?
