{Crafty Cassie} Souped-Up Soup Cans

Okay, I made an executive decision to keep my posts centered on my son’s room until it’s complete. It was getting too crowded in my brain splitting up projects!!

So far I’ve updated his baby dresser, made some cheap art, and painted the bed and walls. Next up are some super cute tins I made for his desk.

You’ll need some soup/veggie/whatever cans, decorative paper (mine is scrapbook paper), Mod Podge, and ribbon trim.


I already had most of the supplies on hand, so all it cost me was a nasty cut from an effing soup can! (Sand the rim down before you handle them!) that’s what she said

Rolling the can along the paper, trace the line to cut your paper to size with your can.

(did that make any sense?! you get the idea, yay for pictures)

Cover the outside of the can with Mod Podge


After wrapping the cut piece of paper around your can, let it set for a few minutes. Then cover the paper with another layer of Mod Podge (to seal and protect the paper)


Once the cans are dry, apply a second coat of Mod Podge if you want. I always have to trim the excess paper too since my genius ‘roll the can’ technique only works on actual geniuses apparently.

Finally, using your glue of choice (glue gun, fabric glue, mod podge), affix a decorative trim/ribbon around the edge.


Cuteness overload, right?! Are you starting to figure out the color scheme for my ‘tween’s’ new room?!
