Art From Recycled Coffee Cans

Recycled1

Painting on empty coffee cans is something new I started doing recently. Typically we were just throwing them away in the trash, but one day I saved one to try painting on it, and I liked the results. Not to mention it gives the container a second life and keeps it out of a landfill.

These are the first three cans that I’ve painted, and I have more waiting to be decorated. I have been using them to store my paint brushes and other art supplies. They work well for that purpose, they look beautiful now and as a bonus, they still smell like coffee.

This was a new, fun project to experiment with, and I encourage you to get creative and see what other kinds of things that you can recycle into a beautiful work of art.
