Shabby Craft Room Recycled Coffee Can Tutorial

Hello lovelies! 
I have been organizing my craft supplies.
I love all of the adorable organizers one can find at Michael's.
However, I am thrifty and wanted to figure out a way to organize my craft supplies without spending any money!
 I decided to create my own cute containers using empty  grocery cans!

Clean grocery cans
Adhesive Spray
Pretty Fabric

Step 1

Apply adhesive spray to outside of can in small sections.
Lay fabric on adhesive sprayed section and gently smooth
 fabric to get most of the wrinkles out. 
Continue to work your way around the entire can spraying and then laying fabric until you meet up with your original starting point.

Step 2
 Trim top and bottom of fabric around can edges.
I left the edges a bit frayed for the shabby look but you can tuck and glue fabric if you like a polished look.
If the can does not have a peel off label and you are using a light colored fabric that shows lettering through the fabric,
 you can apply a second layer of fabric and repeat step 1.

Step 3 
Using your hot gun add a ribbon or trim around the edge.
Add fabric rosettes to tie in your colors and give your can that extra bit of Shabby fabulous punch!
Add your favorite creating supplies such as; paintbrushes, floral wire, scissors, pens, glue sticks, crystals etc!
