Altered Cans

Hello friends!
This is not new, I know.  But these cans are so easily made and they look Fabulous! All you do is: save cans, pull off labels, wash, paint and decorate! And, they are so handy for storage! I think you need a new "pen" holder this weekend!

- I used white Gesso to paint with.

- This one is made with tulle just wraped around and glued, with a vintage lace, stamped tissue paper  and a Tiffany Jewels.

- For this one I cut out one Victorian image, distressed the edges and added together with lace and twine. Three old buttons was also glued.

- For the last one I used a piece of an old blouse that I had. Natur Hamp string was tied round it and a lace was glued at the bottom. Pearl string, button and a metal butterfly finished off and my new storage can is complete.
This is upcycling at its best, you get something usable! Try it!
Happy Friday Everyone!
Hugs, Birgit
