coffee can remake

  I found a really cute idea on pinterest to reuse coffee cans.

Glue rope to your used coffee cans! Cheap, chic organizing.

I hate to throw anything away myself so I decided to give this idea a try.  Here is my version of the coffee can remake.  I started with a empty coffee can, I removed the label.

I hot glued thick white jute rope all the way around the can.

I found an old picture frame that was missing the glass.  I added a piece of burlap to the frame.  I added 2 old buttons tied with a skinny piece of jute.  I glued the frame to the can. 

Here's the can holding scented pinecones.

I flipped the can over and added a crystal bowl with glade candle surrounded by coffee beans.  This is the centerpiece on my kitchen Island.

The can is still flipped over, I added a crystal plate, red candle and string of beads for this look.

Here is another option.  On my bedside table along with my favorite candle. Perfect storage for the remote and my kindle.

I like pieces that are versatile because I like to change my decor.  The possibilities are endless for these coffee cans.

I have done several projects with those cans! I am like you...I don't like to throw away things that could be totally reused.
