Decorating on a budget – Patriotic Cans – 4th of July

Such an easy decoration. Using left over cans from dinner, wash out and dry.

Simply cut out a piece of your favorite scrap paper to the size of your soup can. Tape to the outside of your can.

I tied on a ribbon around the middle to add in a bit of brown to my theme. :)

These cans are perfect also to use for 4th of July picnic/cookouts to hold all your utensils in them. Forks/Spoons/Knives.

I made quite a few of these cans. Why not when you are reusing household items and they look pretty cute. (In my opinion)

Adds just the right amount of color to my display.

    Loving it! I really like the idea of using them to hold utensils at a BBQ too! {Or as place settings for a 4th of July table?!} :) Thanks for sharing!

    Adorable. I could definitely use these for utensils when we dine outside. Maybe a wider one would be good for napkins? They’re always blowing all over the place!

    I’d love for you to join my giveaway for 2 canvas pillow forms going on now! Happy 4th!

    Really cute, simple, and costs next to nothing. I’ve got some soup cans all ready to go. Thanks for the inspiration.
