60 Recycled Can Craft Projects

Recycled Can Craft Ideas

I am super stoked about this week’s 50+, because I now have a ton of inspiration to feed my new Sizzix die cut obsession.  Save those coffee, tuna, veggie and soda cans.  The possibilities are vast.  I hope you are as excited as I am.  Enjoy, and feel free to comment with  topics you would like to see in future 50+ round-ups!!

I am making a gutter and drain downpipe to go into water butt with tin cans and plastic bottles not pretty or cute but practical for my she/craft hut!

I was really inspired by this roundup when I first saw it, but it’s taken me a year to actually create some stuff myself! Here’s my collection of upcycled “can” jewelry:

I love these so much. Do you ever offer any tutorials on how to make these. I would love to use your inspiration to create some of these.
Thanks for sharing!

Do you know where I could buy cans to do a project for a large group?
