Recycle a coffee tin to create a funky pencil pot. The coffee cans with a plastic lid already have a smooth edge so they are ready to cover. I used scraps of fabric samples with different textures in different shades of grey and black to cover my tin.

Materials
Coffee tin
PVA glue
Fabric scraps
Spray varnish (optional)



Fabric


Method
Cut the fabric into small pieces. I cut different sizes of rectangles and squares.



Fabric


Cover the coffee tin with PVA glue.
Stick the fabric scraps onto the coffee can, applying more PVA glue as you go. I used the different shades and textures to create a patchwork effect.



Fabric


Once all the fabric is on, cover with another layer of PVA glue.

I have done this pencil pot with different designs. When my children were in Primary School I asked them to do a drawing then I got it laminated then glued into the tin .A end of the year teachers present from my kids was appreciated.Other times We did a very basic version of decoupage .I have found most time people appreciate a hand made gift I have made them for my friends too which was also very well received a personal touch can mean so much ! by Creative Lee / Lee Hirsh
