Just an Idea, Do you think beings the lid snaps on that you could put one handle on like a coffee cup? Cute Idea, was in my basement the other day wondering what I was going to do with them.
My husband gets the Folgers cans, I get the ice cream pails, lol! So I would make mine to fit the pails.
Or surprise him with one saying
Bolts or Nuts, or whatever he puts in them
Now if I could just get one away from my husband. He takes them to his workshop and I never see them again. My GKs would love this. Thanks
Very clever. Beautiful!
That is great thanks for sharing.
My former boss's dog was having puppies, so I made a treats container out of one of these to go with the 8 little receiving blankets I made also. Great way to repurpose!
This is a wonderful idea. For those of you who are interested. Folgers has a site where you can make stickers to cover the cans... really cute and you can personalize them. But unlike this beautiful one, they don't have handles. Thanks for sharing.
Here is Folgers link..
TOO COOL I SEE THAT YOU HAVE SET OFF SOME OTHER INSPIRATIONS! THANKS I LIKE THEM TOO!
I hope to see them posted here :)
LOVE YOUR IDEAL I AM GOING TO MAKE THEM AS EASTER BASKETS FOR THE GRANDKIDS NEXT YEAR AND MAYBE A FEW FOR SOME OF THE PARENTS THEY LOOK GREAT THANKS
My goodness, I have a lot of these that I just can't discard. Great idea.
Thank You for your wonderful idea. I save my coffee cans too. Can't wait to make some of these up for gifts. The ideas are endless.
great idea!! I can't throw mine away either. Please share instructions with us. How did you attach the handles? I have a bunch in the garage. Maxwell House coffee has a built in side handle. How could he use them also? I think I like the doggie treats idea or maybe crayons and felt pens, Lego's or Barbie stuff!!!
Handle sewed one side to the side of fabric, the other has a velcro fastener
Be careful dont buy sticky velcro, it sticks really bad to the needle. I kept wondering why the thread was not adhering. Yikes, I had to clean the needle up!
Why don't you let us know just how you did this and some mesurments would be nice what I would like to know is how you got it to fit so nicely arounf the top.
will do have to get them written up
Very nice. My brother use to use the metal ones to make storage for toilet paper rolls. He stacked 2-3 together, used hot glue the join them and cover with terry towels. Used a can opener to remove the top and bottom from all except the bottom one. One of the cut out lids he covered with a matching wash cloth and tied together with ribbon. He used lace and ribbon to decorate. You could combine this with the embroidery. As I did not use that much ground coffee I never tried one. However, I still have two he made me plus he made a taller one for me to keep that awful plungger out of site. Since he died just over a year ago they are very special now!
Oh!! post us a photo.
We also use the folgers can to keep the toilet from getting wet in the outhouse!
Thanks for sharing your story!
I mean keep the toilet paper from getting wet.....
