Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Tin Cans

Warhol soup cans via art in the picture

Warhol transformed the soup can from an everyday household item into an icon, something to be treasured. You know the old saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure." I couldn't agree more. (I'm an avid dumpster diver and bulk trash day scavenger.) Old coffee cans and soup cans don't have to be tossed into the recycle bin; they can be turned into things of beauty! Take a look - I hope you are as inspired as I am.

I absolutely love the garden tins, painted blue or left alone! If I didn't have such a brown thumb, I'd would be creating a few of those this weekend.  What have you made with old soup cans - aside from the old string and tin can telephone when you were a kid? xo
