There are so many uses for these in primitive crafting. Mine are going to have a grungy label on the front, and a prim Christmas tree placed inside with moss.
You will need a can of satin cinnamon color spray paint, and a can of rustoleum texture paint. I purchase these at Walmart and Michaels arts and crafts store.
I have to laugh! The can says "stops rust", and I'm wanting the rust!
Next step. Spray the cans with the cinnamon color and let dry. I like to do this outside for obvious reasons.
After the cinnamon color paint dried, I sprayed the texture paint on. You don't have to be fussy, you want the cinnamon color to show through a bit. The two colors will look like rust when dry.
Voila! you are done!!! I was able to paint 20 cans and a large canister lid with one can of the texture paint. There's plenty of paint left in the other can.
I' m adding labels to mine. I always pick the side that looks the worse, maybe some lumps and bumps etc., and glue the label on that spot.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
