DIY Desk Organizers | Recycled Tin Cans

One of my most popular posts was this desk organizer I made for my craft room. Click HERE to check it out! So with back to school around the corner, I thought I would make a few more and get the kids coloring supplies organized.

This project is super simple and quick to make! The two I made below must have taken me less then 15 minutes make. All you need is a few tin cans, decorative duct tape, hot glue, and ribbon if you like. Make them with as many cans as you like... so easy! Click here for instructions.
Here is the hot pink zebra-patterned organizer I made for my daughter.

And here is the one I made for my son with the mustache pattern. 

Hopefully, this will get my kids back into school mode (fingers crossed). Well if it doesn't, hopefully at least it inspires you to create your own. Something like this would also be perfect in the kitchen or the bathroom... Hmmm, getting more ideas... better keep saving those cans!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Happy Crafting :)


  1. Oh my goodness! Now why didn't I think of that? There was some adorable duct tape that I recently saw in my local WalMart and I couldn't think of an excuse to buy it LOL! Now I have the perfect reason...thanks!
