Tin Cans Upcycled into Something Beautiful for Your Home

Shabby Vintage Tin Can Crafts

It never ceases to amaze me the beautiful things that people can create from things we ordinarily just toss in the trash or the recycling bin. I searched for some craft ideas for tin cans and wanted to share my favorites with you. These are simple projects that could be completed in just an hour or so but they add so much charm. I think these would even be lovely as decor for a country, rustic, or shabby themed wedding.
