Tin Can Alley

by - July 03, 2013

I wasn't able to go garage sale shopping last weekend so I turned to items I had readily available for some quick makeovers.

Yup, food cans.  The big one is from a can of baked beans.  The smaller is from a can of alphabet soup (my little guy's favorite!).
It's amazing what a few coats of paint and some lovely French graphics can do to some lowly tin cans.
The images are from The Graphics Fairy, of course.  I used some waterslide decal paper again to add them to each can.  I noticed it works better on spray painted items rather than ones I've painted with chalk paint.
I filled them up with sand so I could add some of my French script candles.  I love the look and the fact that I'm recycling!  Will I ever look at tin cans the same way again?  Probably not!
