Soup Can Upcycle

I've been trying to figure out what to do with a bunch of empty soup cans. (Hubby thought it was a good idea to buy 10 for $10 worth of Chef Boyardee) I feel like there's a lot of crafty things that could be done with them but I'm just not coming up with any on my own.

I might try one of these cute ideas though...

Milton and Margie's soy wax candles

Soup can fabric sleeve by The Long Thread

Got any more?


  1. punched tin votive holders?

    Just be careful: the interior rim is really sharp!

  2. Those are super cute Becky! Have you made them?

  3. no. But i watched Martha make them on TV once, ha, ha. They can be spray-painted and wrapped in fabric before the holes are punched. Battery-operated votive lights remove the fire-hazard fear.

    I really like the poured candle idea you displayed, too. There are so many ways to decorate the outside of the can!

  4. Yeah, I like the candle idea too and I just made a couple. I'll post pics whenever they harden.
