Tin Cans to Colorful Craft Organization

At  The Crafted Sparrow, Rebecca was in the process of giving her craft room a makeover, so she saved tin cans to help her organize supplies.  She had planned on painting them, but came up with an even better idea!

Having heard about the much-coveted (and inexpensive) washi tape at Target, Rebecca bought some to see for herself if it was worth the hype.   So instead of painting her tin cans, she decided to give the washi tape a chance.  “I had the need to try it out, and I really like it.  It’s a really quick way to add a pop of color to things,” Rebecca exclaimed.  The process was pretty simple, she just wrapped the tape around the cans, varying the coordinating patterns of tape.  But what stunning results!  I love the pop of color and sophistication the washi tape adds to plain old tin cans!

Wood Pencil Holder

Andrea from Strawberry Chic loves bringing the outdoors into her home and was thrilled when her husband made her a natural, decorative, AND functional pencil holder for her art room. It started as a piece of 6” popular that a friend had found riverside.
