Rusty Can Tutorial




Greetings everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Sunday. The weather was a little cool here but still lovely. I am so excited to share this with you guys! I have became a recycling nut. I have been finding many uses for everyday items. Hope you enjoy this project.


Supplies Needed:


Tin Can (I used a spaghetti can)


Mod Podge


Spices


Let's begin. I began by washing out my can well and removing the label. After the label is removed refer back to these steps in my previous tutorial on grubbing jars http://thefruitofherhandstudio.blogspot.com/2008_02_01_archive.html


After you have your can grubbied it looks rusty. This step is optional; I printed out my label and stained it with walnut crystals. Using your mod podge glue it on and fill your can with sweet annie! What a lovely display.


As always please do not sell the directions to this tutorial; give them freely to your friends as they were freely given to you.
