5 great DIY ideas with tin cans

The tin can. In 1810 invented by Englishman Peter Durand and since then one of the most important packaging products that is taking for granted in our daily lives. They are used as packaging to store everything: fruit drink, soup, hairpin and car wash. However, the possibilities for reuse are numerous. Read 5 DIY tips on how to reuse the cans instead of throwing them away.

1.     Pin Cushion Storage

Pins can get lost so easily. Creating a pin cusion is ideal. Just need some fabric, poly-fil and some glue.

Mod Podge can be used to stick pages of a cookbook or scrapbook onto your storage cans for a very unique look! You can use these storage cans for the office, in the kitchen, or wherever else you need some organization. Even putting fresh flowers in these cans works wonderfully.

4.     Tin Can Caddy

Paint all your cans along with a flat wood plank. Then attach the cans to the flat wood plank making sure that each can stands upright. Add a leather strap to the top to make it easy to carry!

I am interested in how people as a group can make a difference by working together on sustinability issues. As individuals we can only do so much (or so little), but by bringing people together and allowing them to connect and work together on problems, chances of succesfully finding a solution increase. And that's what we do at WhatsOrb! Join us :)
