DIY Canister Re-Style

Ready for another craft? Don’t worry, this one is so easy even I didn’t mess it up! As you may or may not know, Jeremy and I have been sprucing up our decor around the condo. We started off with kitchen and we had these canisters that sit on the counter that just looked bleh but nothing was wrong with them. They certainly weren’t garbage material. So, I did this spiffy DIY canister re-style for all of you’s, aren’t you lucky!


This is what I started with (excuse the dirt, tee hee):


Then I took this cute ribbon and hot glued that baby around the top like so:


Then, I made a bow with extra ribbon around the latch. Put on these super cute chalkboard stickers. Named them accordingly and TA DA:


Cute, right?! I love it, gives a nice touch that was missing! Wait until you see my brand new re-styled kitchen! Stayed tuned by subscribing to my e-mail updates or connecting with any one of my social media!

    Hi, you made the canisters look so pretty the way you decorated them. I saw it on table for seven.

    It’s really doesn’t take a lot to go from blah to brilliant! Your canister set looks so cute now and it’s a practical change too, since you can now label them! Thanks for sharing, [email protected]

    Gorgeous! I have been reusing every piece of glass that comes into my house. My kids drink an organic juice that comes in a glass bottle and they go through 1 a day. I can’t bring myself to throw that much away so this will be an amazing upcycle!!! Thanks for linking up to the Friday Follow Along!
