Project

I recently had to change one of my cat’s diets and found myself with more leftover food cans than I knew what to do with. As a crafter, I couldn’t just toss them in the recycling bin and forget about them. Clearly, they could be repurposed.

One of my favorite ways to cover a tin can is with strips of fabric. It’s fast and easy, and I always have fabric on hand. For this particular project, I tore a blouse I had accidentally shrunk into strips and wrapped the strips around the can, using a dab of hot glue to hold everything in place. I then wrapped a bit of jute around the can for some extra interest. The size of these cans was perfect for a small succulent, which can easily be replanted once it needs more space to grow. I then cut an old plant marker in half, wrote a little greeting on it, and tucked it into the twine. This made for the perfect thank-you gesture, and I didn’t even have to buy anything!
