Upcycled Coffee Can Vase

How to Make a Coffee Tin Vase

  1. Peal off the wrapper from your coffee tin and clean it out. 

  2. Cover your coffee tin with duct tape. Take your time to make sure you don't get any wrinkles or air bubbles.

  3. Take your ribbon or adorn your ribbon with whatever embellishments you would like. 

  4. Add some glue on the wrong side of the ribbon on each edge and down the center. Then, slowly smooth the ribbon around and press and hold it in place for a second. 

  5. Let that dry for a few hours and then you can add real or faux flowers!

What do you mean by saying never before seen/new craft? We did this in grade school. I'm sure fave crafts can keep bringing new variety of crafts and even clothing tips, tricks, hints, and ideas to the table.

If you're going for an inexpensive project then this is your best bet. You reuse your coffee tins so you don't have to buy a pot and the tin doesn't end up in the dump, I figure that's a win win situation. Plus if you're an avid crafter, you can embellish the tin with some leftover fabric yarn or a coat of paint.

This upcycled coffee can vase is such a cute gift to let your kids make for a teacher gift,mom gift or for themselves. So very inexpensive because you can use a can you already have,some glue and duct tape which you can get at the dollar store. Use glitter duct tape for some extra sparkle. A great way to teach your kids how to recycle. The video skips some but overall it is a good way for the kids to learn. Just add some flowers and water or soil and plant.
