I have been saving every can, jar, and bottle I have opened over the past year.  I hate to admit it but my craft closet is so full I can barley shut the door.  So I decided I needed to start using some of those things, because I can’t bring myself to throw any of it away!

Valentine Tin Cans make perfect gifts

I  used two tin cans from vegetables to make these simple decorations.

I added some Valentine burlap, a bow, and flowers. It can all be done for less than $5 and 5 minutes!

For the smaller can I filled it with red packaging paper and added a small candle.

So lovely!!

The burlap I used is 2-1/2 inches wide. You can also use scraps of fabric.  I wrapped the burlap around the can and hot glued it to the back. I overlapped one end of the burlap and glued it onto the other end of the burlap, because if you hot glue it to the can the hot glue does not stick as well.


Thanks so much for stopping by! xoxo, Marti

    This is a great idea. I covered tin cans in scrapbook paper one year but I did not love it as much as I thought I would, this however is a much better idea. I might have to try it! Thanks, I found you at motivational monday.

      I could not resist the burlap, I thought it was so cute….I had to have it. Scrapbook paper would work, too! I have done that many times, having a vision in mind and yet when I make it, it doesn’t turn out how I thought it would. I will either spend the next week tweaking it….or end up tossing it out. lol
