Craft Project: Can Lid Ornaments

I bought a Pampered Chef can opener and my husband and I had a time figuring out how to use it! When we did, I found a new source of craft materials - can lids! With this can opener, the edges are smooth. You could also use lids from frozen fruit juice concentrate.


Approximate Time: 15 minutes


  • Smooth-edged Can Lids
  • Photos
  • Primer paint
  • Glue
  • Trims, Embellishments
  • Ribbon for Ornaments
  • Magnet for Memo Holders


Prime the lids and allow to dry. Cut photo to fit lid and attach.

Attach trims such as tinsel pipe cleaner for Christmas Ornament (shown) or coordinating rick rack for memo holder, as well as beads or tiny flowers, etc.

Attach ribbon to top for ornament. Attach magnet to back for memo holder.
