There are about a gazillion cool tin crafts out there to choose from. Okay, so maybe I exaggerate a bit. But seriously, when you see some of the ways you can reuse empty coffee cans, soup cans, tuna and vegetable cans, you will never want to throw another can away.

I have never been great at crafts, but if the project is fairly easy and comes with easy step by step directions (and lots of encouragement,) I get all inspired and excited to try. What I love about these ideas below are that the finished projects are all things I would love to have in my home.

Twig Vase

Start this project with an empty coffee can. Mix in some paint, glue, twigs and raffia and look at the amazing vase it turns into! (Can't you this in one of Joanna Gaines' Fixer Upper houses?)

Elegant Tin Can Centerpiece

This DIY shabby chic tin can project from The Pinning Mama is absolutely stunning. What a great idea for a do it yourself centerpiece for bridal showers and weddings!

DIY Candle Holders

 Gather those empty soup cans and recycle them into gorgeous DIY candle Holders, like these ones. I Spaced It Pretty has the step by step tutorial.

Tin Can Shelves

I love this tin can shelf idea! I can think of a million places to hang these round shelves in my house. My kids would love these little tin cubbies. They are perfect for displaying their most treasured possessions (grin.)
