Recycled Christmas Ornaments

December 15, 2008

For this you'll need:
  • can top cover from an used can
  • something to make it nice and pretty: colors, papers, scissors, permanent markers...
  • ribbon

This is with what you begin with, and this is what you get:

You can do what ever you like to decorate your can top covers. What's cool about them is that they already have the little hook on the top, and that they're made of metal and already have nice white, golden or silver color.
I'm really not skilled in drawing or decorating, so I'm sure somebody else would do it much better.

Anyway, I hope you like it :)
If you decide to do your own I would be very happy to see them!
... And remember you've seen it first here!

That is pretty cool, I just threw one of these lids out yesterday :(

Did you do anything to the edges to make them smooth or anything?

Hi, Ginny! No, I didn't use anything special for the edges, only bought the kind of can whose lid goes off by pulling, so there was no need for that.
