Upcyceld Tin Cans - Art inspired

We all use some canned foods from time to time.  And we all probably use empty cans for one purpose or another.  This inscrutable shows how to decorate cans to be used as organizers for pencils, pens, paint brushes, etc.  It's a simple thing to do, and children would especially have fun making their creations.

Can Art: A Way To Recycle Some Tin Cans

1.      Prime the cans so the glue sticks
2.   Make the tiles. I painted Styrofoam and cut it into tile shapes. (Use whatever you have at hand.)
3.      Glue tiles to primed can
4.      Grout spaces between tiles and wipe off excess.
