Easy Upcycled Twine and Lace Cans Craft
I love a home decor project that is nearly free to make. Upcycled cans get transformed into vases with the addition of twine and lace ribbon.
To make the vase seasonal, use a different color ribbon.
This project is a good one to do with kids. Being a former teacher, I’m picturing it being a perfect Mother’s Day project.
- 1" Lace Trim
- Cans, empty and washed
- Gorilla Glue
Apply gorilla glue up and down the can in a diagonal pattern.
Start at the bottom of the can and add a line of twine at the bottom, pressing firmly to adhere the twine to the can.
Wrap the twine around the can, pressing the twine down as you go. You may need to add a little glue here and there.
When you get to the top of the can, cut the twine, and firmly press the twine to the can, securing it.
Add a dab of glue to the middle of the can, on top of the wrapped twine, and secure one end of the lace trim to it.
Wrap the trim halfway around the can, add another dab of glue, and press firmly to secure. Wrap the trim around the rest of the can, add a dab of glue where the trim will meet the other end. Cut the trim where it meets, and press firmly to secure it.
