This project is super easy! With recycled cans, craft paper, fabric, and ribbon you can create something decorative and functional for your home, office, and craft room.

Total Time: 1 hr.


  • clean food cans
  • craft paper
  • fabric
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • tape measure or ruler
  • glue gun
  • craft paint for the inside of your cans - optional


  1. With your clean cans, take your paper or fabric and cut to size. Hot glue your seam from top to bottom. Press together, adding glue around until the seam meets.
  2. Trim the top of your can for a more finished and decorative edge with ribbon. As an optional addition you can use craft paint to give a shabby look on the inside.
