Carol turns “recyclized” materials into functional and attractive desk caddies that can be personalized for every member of the family. Just save those old tin cans and get ready to have some fun!

Materials Needed:

Scraps of Fabric

Scraps of Ribbon

Cut-outs or Stickers of Sports Equipment

Annual School Photos

White Glue

Glue Gun

4 Tin Cans (graduated sizes)

Here’s how:

Cut ribbon and fabric to size of each can so it wraps completely around. Glue fabric to each can and glue ribbon to top and bottom edges of cans. Cut sports equipment pictures from magazines and glue onto cans. Glue school photos and stickers to can. Glue four cans together with glue gun.
