Decoupaged Christmas Cans

Paper napkin can help you recycle in a decorative way! Many items that would otherwise land in the garbage bin can be saved, decorated and reused for other purposes. Here cans were decoupaged to be used as a storage cans for craft supplies. But you can also use such a can as packaging for Christmas cookies or other Christmas gifts.



Decoupage Can with Winter Scene 2

For this project you will need:

- paper napkin with winter scene
Winter Scene Paper Napkin
This is how the napkin looked when completely opened. There are two halves with the same winter scene which is enough for two cans.

- cleaned can with lid
- paper napkin applique glue or decoupage glue
- paintbrush
- white acrylic paint
- snow paint for added detail (optional)
- iridescent glitter (optional)


1. Wash cans out and let them thoroughly dry.
2. Base coat the cans with white acrylic paint if the cans have print on them that will be seen through the paper napkin layer..
3. Follow the instructions in the link below to learn how to decoupage the paper napkins onto the can.
4. When dry, you can add snow paint around the details for extra texture. This looks nice, especially if you are giving these cans as gifts filled with goodies. Sprinkle iridescent glitter into the still wet snow paint for added sparkle if you like.
