I love to buy Pringles potato chips in their handy little storage cans. They store so nicely in the cupboard! However, when they are empty, it almost seems a shame to just throw the cans away. Well, there is no need to do that! These Pringles can crafts offer inspiring ideas for holiday decor.
I have re-used the cans to store other items in my craft room, like long paint brushes or floral picks. But, there are several fun things that you can do with these cans that are perfect for decorating or gift giving during the holidays. There are so many fun ways that you can decorate a can simply to hold treats for gift giving but there are also some unique decorating ideas that you can try.
After searching for some festive ideas, I came up with a list of favorite Pringle can crafts for each holiday to share with you. Find ideas for Halloween, patriotic holidays, and Christmas.
