Fun Vintage Decor - several finished relabeled containersUsing and decorating old cans and wood, paired with a couple of flea market finds (salt can and cracker tin), turn it all into something fun and decorative!


Total Time: 1 hour


  • cans or jars
  • modge podge (or mixture of glue and paint) and paint brush
  • double stick tape
  • wood
  • printed vintage labels
Fun Vintage Decor - printed labels
Fun Vintage Decor - glue, tape, and foam brush


  1. For the sign: Using modge podge or a mixture of half glue and half water, paint a piece of wood. Let it dry. Paint the glue mixture onto the back of a printed picture or design. Place onto wood, centering and pressing from the center of the design outward to the edge, carefully, to avoid wrinkles.
  2. Fun Vintage Decor - scrap wood and foam brush
  3. Add an additional layer of glue and water mixture. Let dry. Paint as many coats as you think it needs. I usually do three coats, letting it dry between each coat.
  4. Fun Vintage Decor - vintage Campbell's soup ad applied to wood and decoupaged

  5. For the cans, use double stick tape to apply a label to a clean, empty can. This is a bottle I had and I used it as a milk bottle.
  6. Fun Vintage Decor - bottle with vintage milk bottle label
