How to Make a Fruit Can Pen/Pencil Holder

Wash and dry an empty fruit can (or any size can). With scraps of fabric, apply a coat of decoupage to the backside of each piece, and pressing it flat one at a time. After each piece is applied, apply a thin coat of decoupage over the top side also. Over lap you pieces and allow the entire can to dry before using.

This can was decoupaged with scrap fabric leftover from a furniture store sample book. The pieces were used to cut circles for a yo-yo fabric coverlet first, and the remaining scraps were used for the can.

The end of each fabric sample had a tag glued to it's back. These ends were simpy cut along the label and reused for bookmarks.

Fill you finished decoupaged can with pens and/or pencils. Enjoy living "green" in your home!
