Repurposed Coffee Cans

by Dinah Wulf

Not that long ago, I posted on my Facebook page, “What can I repurpose a large coffee can into? Hmmmm…” Joann said a flower pot. Flomo said a centerpiece. Charlotte suggested baking apple bread in it!  Such great ideas!  After some thought, here are some ideas I came up with for repurposed coffee cans.

Craft Organization

You can use a coffee can to store miscellaneous craft supplies in your craft closet.  Use it upright or turn it on its side for multiple utility.  This is what I ultimately ended up doing with it… for now. Note my repurposed spice rack and mason jars in the picture too… tee hee.

 

Flower Pot

Thank you, Joann!!!

 

Gift Wrapping

Use a coffee can as a clever way to wrap a house warming gift of kitchen supplies.  Also consider painting it or wrapping it with gift wrapping paper or decorative scrapbook paper.  Embellish it with ribbon and make a personalized gift tag.

 

Guest Room Necessities

Use it to store necessities for any visitors staying in your guest room to make them feel more welcome.  Fill it with magazines, travel guides, maps, towels, shampoo, soap, q-tips, cotton, candies, or razors. By the way, check out my Scrabble art work tutorial if you’d like!

Have any other ideas?  Please leave a comment!
