Trash to Treasure Thursday- Dollhouse Miniature Coffee Can

I know a lot of you have missed my Trash to Treasure series. I am bringing it back in the new year but not every week. Right now my plan is that on the first and third Thursdays of each month there will be a Trash to Treasure project. I will be announcing the details of the schedule on both a blog post and on the Facebook group so keep an eye out for that.

This week we are creating a can of coffee for the dollhouse. This looks so cute sitting on the kitchen counter or in a mini store. I am sure you will find a lot of places to use it.

The label I cut was ½” wide by 2” long, you will need to measure your canister in case the sizing is different. Most of mine seem to be the same size but I usually buy the same brands of stuff so other brands might use a different size.

I used some matte sticker paper that I had a scrap of on my desk, you could certainly use any paper that is handy. I used a Sharpie marker to make my design because I knew once it got dry it was less apt to smear. If you are using a plain paper and glue to attach your label be sure to test the glue with whatever you are planning to color your label with.

This could easily become another type of can too. I have seen some wonderful paint cans made of these. I think it would also work for a can of shortening in the kitchen. I bet if you look around your house you will be inspired with all kinds of things you can make using this same method.
