How to Make a Supply Holder from a Tin Can

Project 3 in  “Tin Can” Series

I love reusing and repurposing things around the home. My tin can collection is rather extensive as is my glass bottle and many other random items I think I might find a use for someday. I’ve gotten to the point of knowing which can brands have a white coated inside, which I’m sure to buy more of when I know a project is coming up or just feel like my stock is low;)  Today I am sharing with you project three in my “Tin Can” series!Displaying Rope & Tin Can holder - S



  1. Start with a few different sized tin cans. You can use them raw (unpainted) or paint them with coordinating colors. I chose to paint them because I like the peek of color from under the rope and inside the can:)
  2. Next you will need to use a hot glue gun to adhere the rope to the tin can. I chose to use a wider rope for this project but any size will work. Start at the top of the tin can so that you can be sure to get a clean finish at the opening. Gradually work your way down. You can keep the rope tight for a cleaner look or allow for some paint to show between the rows for a more rustic look. Be sure to use a fair amount of glue on each row to ensure your masterpieces holds up for any use you may find for it;) Displaying Rope & Tin Can holder - S
  3. Once you get to the bottom of the tin can, go every so slightly past the can bottom. This will allow for a softer bottom and offer a little protection to any surface you place it on. Finally, cut the rope end on an angle to get a clean finish.Displaying Rope & Tin Can holder - S
