Upcycled Copper and Denim Tin Can Craft Caddy
Not having my own studio and having to craft on the dining room table can be a real pain sometimes. Basically because I have to tidy it up and can’t just shut the door on it. Sometimes I find it a real faff having to get my stuff in and out of cupboards. Then I thought if I made a good looking craft caddy for my brushes, scissors, pencils & pens not only would it be handy but I wouldn’t have to hide them away. I’m really pleased how this craft caddy has turned out and will now be making a cutlery one for when my dining room is a dining room and not a craft room.
What You Need to Make Your Caddy
As I like to upcycle I made my craft caddy out of stuff I already had. My sister had asked me for a copper pineapple for her birthday !; so I decided to use the copper spray paint left over from that project. Also as I think copper and denim look great together so decided to use some denim as well.
How to make a craft caddy
That’s it once all the cans are attached your caddy is ready to go. I love the stylish copper and denim look of this craft caddy but with the surprise splash of colour from the insides of the cans. You can also use it as a picnic caddy, or just as a handy portable storage for all those bits a pieces you don’t know where to put but want on hand.
