Altered Cans

lördag 11 augusti 2012

Hello friends!
This is not new, I know. But these cans are so easily made and they look Fabulous! All you do is: save cans, pull off labels, wash, paint and decorate! And, they are so handy for storage! I think you need a new "pen" holder this weekend!
- I used white Gesso to paint with.
- This one is made with tulle just wraped around and glued, with a vintage lace, stamped tissue paper and a Tiffany Jewels.

- For this one I cut out one Victorian image, distressed the edges and added together with lace and twine. Three old buttons was also glued.

- For the last one I used a piece of an old blouse that I had. Natur Hamp string was tied round it and a lace was glued at the bottom. Pearl string, button and a metal butterfly finished off and my new storage can is complete.
This is upcycling at its best, you get something usable! Try it!
Happy Saturday Everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Disse er jo kjempefine! Fint med noe som kan brukes også - kort har dessverre en tendens til å bli lagt unna. Nydelig blondeblomst!
