Monday was a really great day to be outside. I had a few cans laying around that I planned to decorate and use for organizing. So I took everything I needed out to the backyard and enjoyed the nice weather.
Tin Can Organizers
These are my empty cans in a variety of sizes. Labels taken off, washed, and aired out. 
For these two, I used acrylic paint. The orange one got a coat of glitter mixed with Mod Podge. I didn't paint the ribs on the purple can because I planned on covering it with ribbon.
I only painted the top and bottom green. wrapped it with scrapbook paper, and later added some sparkly blue ribbon. Here are some pictures of the new cans and some older ones.
