I just did a pineapple bookmarker diy last week and so this week, I’m gonna push this theme again…hahaha! This time we’ll use tin cans to make pineapple theme canisters.
Tin cans are fun to repurpose because there are just so many ways to reuse and upcycle them. Every household must have tin cans of some sort. So let’s turn them into pineapple theme containers.
It’s summer and really the great pineapple is a perfect symbol for it, right. But my daughter doesn’t think so, she just looked at me funny again. She probably thinks I’m beginning to look like a pineapple.
If you’re not sick of this theme yet, let’s begin.
Acrylic paint ( white,brown, green and yellow )
First, cover the tin can with construction paper. You can use glue gun or tacky glue and wrap the paper around it.
Next, get some cardboard and draw a pineapple outline as big as the tin can you’re using.
Cut out the pineapple outline and use that cut out to trace another one or however many tin cans you want to embellish.
Paint the cardboard cut out with white acrylic paint.
When that is dry, paint the pineapple body with yellow paint. Use green acrylic paint for the crown or leaves.
Then use brown paint and make diagonal lines on the body. When those lines are dry, paint another set of diagonal lines on the opposite side.
When the painted pineapple cardboard is completely dry, attach it on the front of the tin can using a glue gun.
How easy is that! And c’mon it looks pretty and summery ey.
You can totally rock this!
