Tin Can Organizers for Int’l Bloggers Club

It’s that fun time of the month again, our Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge is on! Last time we showed you a fun outdoor project and this month it’s all about tins! You know the kind you probably have at home, whether a cookie tin or a food can, or which ever tin you might have laying around, tins are always there somehow, right? So we thought, why not use a normal household tin and make something pretty and fun with it! I must admit that my project is nothing new, I mean if you check on Pinterest, you’ll find tons of tin can organizers, but as always, I had fun giving it my own personal style.

[This post contains affiliate links, for more info please read my disclosure.]

So I made these cute tin can organizers for my daughters desk and she loves them! Organizers always come in handy and if they are this cute, then even better! And believe me, they are SO easy to whip up!

Tin Can Organizers

These are the two tin cans I had at home.

What I used to cover them up:

~ this gift wrap 

~ similar washi tape

~ raffia ribbon

~ stick on lace ribbon

~ glue stick


Cover the tin can with the wrapping paper, to see where to more or less cut it. You won’t have the exact size yet.

Roll and press the tin into the paper so you’ll leave a line on the inside to know where to exactly cut it.

Apply only little bits of glue on the tin, on both ends, in the middle and bottom and top. No need to cover the whole tin with glue. I found it easier to get the paper on it without having bubbles. Once the tins were covered with the gift wrap, I added the washi tape, raffia ribbon and sticky lace ribbon to give them some extra details.

This is how they look on my daughters desk:

    These turned out so pretty! I love decorating cans, and jars. They both make great organizers for small items, pencils, etc. You can never have too many organizers 😊

    Katrin those are really beautiful tin can organizers! You don’t just wrap with pretty paper but go a step further and add the embellishments which make them so elegant. I bet your daughter is super happy with them

    How lovely these tin cans are! I’d always be afraid about cutting oneself on that rather sharpish edge at the inside. But you’ve turned these plain tin cans into beauties!
    Have a lovely day,

    • Katrin
      31/05/2017 at 07:05

      Thank you Marjan! They are actually not sharp at all inside, they didn’t have a tin top to take off, just a foil top and then a plastic cover, that’s why I used them for this, if not, oh gosh, I’d be scared my daughter would be cutting her wrists each time she’d be reaching for her pens.
      Have a great week 🙂

    Great fun, quick project! I did something very similar a couple months ago for all my colored markers and colored pencils (I love to color!), to keep them neat and tidy, plus look pretty in my office when not in use. Love yours – so pretty! Great share!

    • Katrin
      29/05/2017 at 22:09

      Oh I’d love to see Naomie! Tins are really fun to recycle and make pretty, right?? Thanks so much for your sweet comment!

    It’s your unique style that makes them so special Katrin. I swear I would recognize something you made just by looking at the pictures. Everything is always so elegant and beautifully stylish. It’s almost as if you have this magic wand that you wave over your creations and they turn into WOWness. If you ever decide to sell some of that magic dust, I want to be the first to know please 😉

    Katrin these are the prettiest tin can organizers I’ve ever seen. What a clever idea to add the washi tape, the ribbon and above all else, the lace to make it special. I really love those soft colors too. I’m usually too lazy to do all this but after seeing your organizers I may be inspired to go digging for my lace too.
