Hey! Hi! Howdy!
I hope you’re having a good weekend!
I know it’s totally not soup season, but I still enjoy a good can of soup every now and then! I feel guilty wasting a perfectly good can. The DIY-instinct in me says “recycle!” Here are five different ways to recycle your soup cans
Make a Weave!
Try making a woven textile out of yarn the size of the can. Wrap is around and use hot glue to adhere in place!
Alternate colored pipe cleaner to make a colorful pattern! Use hot glue to adhere!
Wrap some macrame cord around the can! Also use hot glue to adhere in place.
“Yarn bomb” around the can, alternating color until you reach the top. Weave in your ends.
Cut a piece of fabric the size of the can. Use fabric glue or modge podge to adhere them onto the can!
What ways do you recycle your soup cans??
One of the challenges I have while blogging is my limited space to take photos. I rent a decent sized two bedroom apartment, but space is still very limited. I have to get creative when I’m taking photos of the projects I share. Here is one of my secrets to mixing up the backgrounds to my photos (well not really a secret, you can find it all over Pinterest).
Here is what you will need:
Rolled Poster Paper
Paint and Paint Brushes
Project Time: less than an hour
Project Difficulty: Easy Peasy
Project budget: around $10
Roll out two long sheets of the poster paper and use washi tape to adhere the seam together (you can use scotch tape if you want). I suggest hanging the paper where you intent to take the photos because it could easily ripe if you try and transport it (trust me…).
Next, just paint whatever pattern you want! I just used Xs, Os and hearts to decorate mine.
Once the paint is dry, have fun taking your photos! Like I said. I used this as a backdrop for my project photos, but you can also make one for a photo booth at a party!
What do you like to use for a backdrop for your photos?
