Recycled Candy Containers


Take a little tuna fish can and cover it with spray paint and paper. Hot glue plastic pony beads all the way around the side and run a yarn through the beads and you have a little drum. Be sure to use a safety can opener so that there are no sharp edges and the top of the can works as a lid.  I think it would be best to package the candy in little clear bags so the candy doesn’t take on any odd tastes from the can.


Small olive and green chili cans would make cute little drums. You could also forget the beads and yarn and use glitter and other embellishments instead!

    Hi to everyone!! I just “re-found” Cindy’s awesome site and have spent the last hour reading thru all of her wonderful posts. I had the priviledge of being her neighbor and friend in Germany, and can tell you that she really whips these beautiful crafts up almost daily. I have learned SO MUCH from her!!!It’s a wonderful gift that she has chosen to share all of her creativity with everyone!!! The only thing more inspiring than her crafts is her generous heart!
