  1. First, make sure your Pringles can is clean and 100% dry.  Measure the length of the can and subtract 1 inch.  Measure that length on your scrapbook paper and mark it with a pencil.  Cut off the remaining paper.
  2. Place a strip of glue vertically down the canister.  Attach the paper to the glue strip, leaving about half an inch of room on the top and bottom of the canister.  Roll the paper around the container and secure with more glue.
  3. Decorate your container as you’d like!

This is a fun storage can project. There's so much you can use to decorate the empty can with. You could use spray paint and give it a nice coat of your favorite colour, cover it with some fabric scraps and add embellishments like glitter stones or buttons. The possibilities are endless here.

My kids are always asking me to pick up Pringles at the store. Now I have a great idea to do something with the cans instead of throwing them away. I love projects where you can recycle something you already use anyway into something you can keep using to keep it out of the landfill.

I have made several of these using raisin, oatmeal and similar containers! But I used fabric scraps and old wallpaper! I used holiday fabric and put ribbon over the top and bottom edges to conceal raw edges of fabric, and on the side seam, I just folded it over and hot glued the whole thing, or used white glue! For the plastic lid, I added a bow! Then I filled them with holiday cookies, and the recipient got the use of the container as part of the gift! Easy, and up cycling at its best!

This is quiet cute and less for landfill

I am teaching a group of kids how to crochet and this is the perfect project to keep their hooks in. Will be making this.

I wrap yarn around them

If they could get wet, pop the lid over the bottom.

This is such a good idea and really fun for the kids, thank you so very much!!!

This is a great idea for storing your pasta's as well. Thank you

I have been making this craft forever and use contact paper to decorate it, among other things. When my children were younger, they decorated these for gifts or combined them with other cylinder type objects to make castles or space stations. I use them ti hold my knitting needles and crochet hooks and the smaller snack ones for the little things for my knitting/crocheting (like stitch markers, sewing needles, bobbins, stitch holders, etc)
