Tin Can Caddy from Martha Stewart


This is so cool. I am always saving my cans to reuse, and this is the perfect project.

Use old tin cans as a caddy for pens, colored pencils, and other arts supplies. Attached to painted plywood, this organizer makes it easy to transport art supplies anywhere

Caddy How to:
1. To make the handle, have a parent drill 3 overlapping 1 inch holes in the top center of a 13 x 6 inch piece of 3/4 inch think plywood. 
2. Sand edges of plywood and paint with latex paint. Crimp rough edges of tin cans if necessary.
3. Drill a small hole in the side of each can, 3/4 inch from the top; screw 1/2 inch screws from the insides of the cans into the wood on an angle. Aligning tips of cans as shown.
