Hidden Gems UnVEILED #2: Tin Cans

I find that there’s nothing better than an impactful decor element that’s created from an everyday product — especially when said everyday product is extremely affordable and/or reusable.  The next featured item in this series is the always reliable tin can.  Tin cans can be purchased in grocery stores, craft stores, hardware stores, or even rented from a multitude of event rental companies.  Better yet, your tin cans can simply be old soup or vegetable cans that were used for this week’s meals.  Tin cans are an essential base for a multitude of decor items — chandeliers, mobiles, centerpieces, decorative votives, lanterns, you name it!

Tin cans are extremely easy to acquire.

They’re affordable.

They can mold to any theme you can imagine.

Tin cans provide that essential base in a design element.  It can provide anything from that needed metallic accent to an essential modern texture.
