That's how I feel about this pencil cup.
First-- You all know how much I love the blog MADE, right? Well, earlier this week she posted a tin can project-- that didn't use spray paint. Spray paint is right after hot glue in my list of arch enemies! Then, the very next day, I used a can of crushed tomatoes in some soup. And we have broken nearly all of our mugs that we use for our daily tea habit, and it would be so nice to recover the mug that currently holds our pens and pencils.
See... the universe made me do it!
It's a pretty simple craft. First I washed and dried the can. I also sanded the sharp edges a bit. Following the MADE's tutorial, I mixed my acrylic paint with mod podge.
I did quite a few coats, using a hair dryer to dry in between coats.
All done! Thank you, universe!
