Recycle old cans and give them a new lease of life by turning them into useful containers for pens and pencils. Choose different sized cans so you can group them together for a more interesting finish.

Step 1: Prepare your cans

Stick newspaper and masking tape inside the cans to stop any paint from getting where it shouldn’t.

Step 2: Get spraying

Spray the cans liberally with paint, making sure you follow any instructions on the packaging and always spray at a safe distance in a well-ventilated area. 

Top tip

If you want to make your tins more decorative, simply cover a paper label with some chalkboard paint and tie it on with some twine.
