Crafts Using Folgers Instant Coffee Containers

I have quite a few empty Folgers Instant containers, in different sizes. I just love the shape.
I'm looking for suggestions on different ways to decorate and utilize these containers. I will share photos during the process.


Thanks guys, you're the best.

If you have a small, medium, and a large, paint all three white. With the large on bottom, glue the medium one to the large, and the small to the medium and you have a snowman. Then decorate and add to the medium one with stick arms and so on!

They would make great banks. If you have more than one child you can decorate them and put each person's name on the tops.
I use them to store sewing stuff.

I covered them with decorative Contact adhesive paper, and made storage containers for rice, dried beans, brown sugar, cornmeal, pasta, chocolate chips, coconut, breadcrumbs, etc. I put chalkboard labels on the front. They stack well on my shelves, and are pretty much airtight.

You can go to, click on "Apps" and then click on "decorate your canister". There are seasonal designs that you can customize and print out on adhesive paper.
