Coffee cans, tea tins, booze cans~ they can all be reused in various ways. Here are a few ideas:
-use as organizers for pens, pencils, markers, scissors, or all in one.
-put a wick in and fill with wax to make your favorite type of candle.
-make May or Easter baskets.
-use them to store dry goods in, like beans, nuts, flour, sugar.
-punch decorative holes into a pattern, then put a tea light inside for outdoor patio.
-decorate the outside to any theme for any of these ideas.
-and last, use them for planters, which is what I did here...
