Every week we calmly get rid of seemingly completely unnecessary empty tin cans, which used to store different goodies. But you can use them to make useful objects that are useful in everyday life and help decorate your home. We picked up 12 creative ideas for using a can. Give old banks a second life!
1. Wall Decor
If your hands are not for boredom, such an activity will be only joy. Using stencils, awls, scissors, colored markers or spray cans, you can create unique figures and place them on the wall of your room. This option will look especially harmoniously in the nursery or bedroom.
2. Towel Holders
It is much more pleasant when each towel neatly lies in its place than when they hang all the pipes and doors. Tin cans again come to the rescue. The main thing is that the area of your bathroom allows you to implement this idea.
3. Design For Storing Scarves
Ladies can use old tins to store their favorite neck accessories. In the spring, these wardrobe items are especially in demand.
4. Bottle Stand
Another useful thing for the kitchen, for which banks are the best fit. Fasten them together and install them in a convenient place for you. Connoisseurs of aromatic strong drinks can place bottles of wine there. But vessels with sauces, oil, vinegar or other suitable liquids in the household can also be safely stored on such a stand.
5. Stand For Kitchen Appliances
So that when cooking culinary masterpieces the shovels, nimbuses, and spoons you need are always at hand, store them on a shelf made of tins. You can give the banks an original design by pasting them with recipes for delicious dishes: at the right time it will be convenient to peek if you have forgotten any ingredient.
6. Needle Box
Pins and needles can easily get lost in the bowels of an apartment because of its small size. But this cannot be allowed in any way. From an old can, a piece of foam rubber and fabric, you can easily craft this cute and very useful little thing.
7. Shelf For Storing Yarn
Needlewomen are also very useful for tin containers. Build a shelf for knitting balls from them, and they will never again be confused and terribly annoying. You can create a whole collection by distributing the threads according to colors, composition and other characteristics.
Useful objects can also be created from rings, with which cans are opened, for example, with sparkling water. Glue them together, pass a light bulb through the resulting hole, and voila! – The original chandelier is already on your ceiling.
9. Bird Feeders
We ate ourselves – treat the birds outside the window. To do this, you just need to connect the jar and the tree with a ribbon, attach an impromptu perch and, of course, pour a treat for the birds. And if you also paint a tin feeder in a bright color, spring in your yard will come much faster.
10. Organizer For Stationery Or Accessories
Pens, felt-tip pens, scissors, hair-bands, jewelry, and other household trifles will no longer be lost and litter your apartment. Turn on the imagination, and you will have a stylish organizer in which each thing will find its rightful place. Girls and children will definitely like this invention.
An old jar can become an unusual and rather convenient candlestick. This is useful, for example, on a summer terrace or in the gazebo, where there is no electricity. Decorate the container to your liking, hang it in the right place with a thick fishing line and place a candle in a jar. Not only practical but also romantic.
12. Flower Pots
If you like fresh flowers and consider them the best decoration of the apartment, you need to pay special attention to tin assistants, because they are perfect as flower pots. Durable and very beautiful.
