Now at the same time as one friend was showing me this fun idea, another friend was in need of organizing her school room at home (she has 5 kids and home schools...talk about an excuse to be slightly unorganized!). She instantly came to mind when I began to think about bringing this project to life.
Here is the basic idea:
|I wiped down my cans first. If you are using something that is actually metal you can wash it but these formula cans are cardboard so I just wiped them out.|
|I peeled the labels next. This step is probably unnecessary so take it or leave it:)|
|You'll see I had 5 formula cans and one Nesquik which was a little taller. You really can use any size!|
|Next I Mod Podged the paper onto the cans. On 3 of them I used wrapping paper and the other 3 I used construction paper. The wrapping paper is much more likely to crinkle or tear so I recommend sticking with sturdier papers.|
|I then used hot glue to attach all of the cans in a pyramid shape with the tallest can in the center of the bottom row.|
|Look at all that storage space! Perfect for school supplies, craft supplies, or any other thing you can think up:)|
