First thing you will need is to prepare your can, I use a can that is about two inches tall and four inches across ( mine had chunk chicken in it ) ! The secret for being able to use a can without getting cut is to use a can opener that does not leave a sharp edge ! So you need to have a can opener that leaves a smooth edge.
Next to create the unique pedestal for your treasure keeper you will need to choose a candle holder of your choice depending on how tall you want yours.
Those trips to the thrift store have paid off now with your little stash of candle holders available !
Next you need to paint the tin can and candle holder. I used Krylon Satin Ivory spray paint , so easy to paint things with ! I used several coats till I felt it was covered good.
You can age them if you want with some chalks or however you like best aging papers!The fun part begins with choosing any kind of papers you would like and using Mod Podge or adhesive of your choice , cover the lid and sides. After your papers have dried you can also age the can and candle with paint or in this one I used Alcohol inks . I also cut a little fluffy circle for in the inside of the container.
I added some ribbons and a vintage glass prism to the candle stick part for a little added bling. You could also use charms,buttons or even a tag ! I hope you enjoyed this & will have fun creating your own ! So appreciate your comments!
