Wasn't really sure where to post this so I hope this is a good place Smiley

I am so excited about this! Now this was kinda of a practice round to see if it could actually work. I plan on getting some sweet scrapbook paper and using modpodge to attach it to the cans. I also want to make the board a bit prettier looking, cover the inside bottoms of the cans so you can't see the wire and frame it so it looks neat on the wall but I was so excited I just HAD to post!!!

I also plan on making some free standing ones and smaller and larger ones, I just need some more Pringles cans Smiley

So here it is my Pringles can organizer (now I can't take full credit my friend Danyell gave me the beginnings for the idea) but this one is made so you can hang it on a wall. You could use it for many things the pics show using it for colored pencils or as a magazine rack (my fav)

Without further adieu....

Here are some updated pics! This is the final product, I used mod podge and covered the cans with SEVERAL layers of tissue paper, I lined the end of the can with ribbon and attached them together with hot glue. This one I decided to be designed to set on a table or counter.

Pics are gone, sorry!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
