There’s a lot that you can do with all those used up milk powder cans. I was already using mine to store things like kitchen utensils, but was inspired by my friend Amanda to turn them into something pretty:
A word on mod podge: this glorious glue can be used to adhere the paper onto the can, and also to provide a water-resistant varnish when painted on top of the paper. You can make your own by stirring together glue plus water in equal quantities. I found some “adhesive latex” glue locally that worked pretty well when diluted.
So it’s probably self explanatory, but you simply cut a piece of paper to fit around the can, glue it on, then use a paintbrush to layer on the mod podge finish. As you can see in the photo, it’s a little streaky when you paint it on, but dries clear and even. And that’s it!
