i saw this just the other day, sorry can't remember where, but a lady painted them (lid and all) with various pictures and made bowling pins for her baby. She put rice, pasta etc in them and glued the lids shut so they made noise as they fell. Probably make good drums too.

I saw this idea when i went to some type of fest in my town, They take diffrent sizes of tins, cans and they take the paper off and paints them colors, any colors you would like. Then he clues them together to make the tin man from the wizard of oz! It was sooo cute! kinda like whats below....

My mum collects cans & makes a batch of bread dough or a sweet bread.
She greases up the insides and then puts small portions in each can and bakes them.
Then, she wraps a little scrap of fabric or piece of wallpaper sample around the can & tie on a ribbon.
Mum then gives them to neighbours or shut-in seniors when she goes visiting.
Who can refuse a freshly made treat!

I use thing s like this to organize my crafting things. Mostly the assortment of glass, buttons, tile, broken dishes, ect.. tat I use for mosaic. I should paint them or paper them like suggested here I could color code them as to what color they hold. good idea yay.

You can punch holes in the sides and use them as luminaries.
Use them to hold rock collection, acorn collection, marble collection, etc.

You can make them into mini tin can stilts, or hot glue fabric/rhinestones to them and keep stuff in them.

I used to decorate them and use them as toy drums as a kid.

Recently I used something similar, decorated it and added handmade pincushions to the top to use as a travelling sewing supply container.
