For tonight let's take a look at a great rainy day craft... Tin Cans = Pencil Holders
You will need:
- Scrapbooking Paper
- Tin Can
- Glue Gun
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
Measure the height and circumference of your can and cut the paper accordingly allowing an extra 1/2" to wrap the paper over the top edge of the can.
Run a line of hot glue down the can and line up the edge of your paper on the glue. Be careful, the heat of the glue will come through the paper.
Run another line of glue down the can next to the starting point of the paper. Then wrap the paper around the can and press onto the glue. Again be careful, it will be hot!
Bend the top of the paper over the can to cover the rough edge.
Next, carefully run hot glue around the inside of the can on the edge of the paper and cover with ribbon to finish off the edge. Do this working in batches so the glue does not dry too quickly.
Finally, brush the can with Mod Podge and let dry.
I have also done this project with fabric and though it is a bit easier you can see the ridges in the can. But it worked nicely for some Batman cans for Nate's room!
