I’m so excited to be joining forces again, with the Junkers United team, to bring you another junk-filled special event! We are inviting you to join in, by sharing your favorite projects. Are you ready?!!
So…let’s get started! Grab some clean tin cans in assorted sizes. Make sure there are no sharp edges.
Now, remove some pages from a junk book – I used a beat up old dictionary, but any book (or scrapbook paper) would work.
I mixed some white glue with a little bit of water and “painted” the glue onto my cans, then adhered the pages onto the cans, and let them dry (or blow dry them to speed it up). I painted another layer of the glue mixture over the pages to seal and protect them. then let them dry well.
To give the top and bottom of the cans a finished look, I hot-glued some twill tape around them.
I drilled two holes in each can and screwed the cans onto a piece of old wood I had in my wood scrap stock, but you could also use a new board, and either paint or stain it.
Have fun making your own repurposed tin can organizer!
Now take a look at all the projects created by the rest of the Junkers United team!
