Of the many object addictions I have, things that hold other things is one that might grow stronger each day. So when I found these cute cylinder chip board boxes at a craft store, I knew I had to decorate and put them to use. This is a super easy, relaxing project that you can make to fit any decor, occasion, or use.
mod podge (I used matte)
foam brush/paint brush
magazine clippings (I used an old LIFE magazine)
chalkboard paint for tops
Once you have your clippings cut out, get a rough idea of where you want them to go on your canister. This will help you plan what will overlap and any blank spaces you need to fill. Then start mod podging them on one piece at a time. If you are getting lots of air bubbles, it helps to stick the piece down first, then apply some mod podge over the image and smooth it around with your finger. Messy, but it works!
While your canisters are drying, paint your tops with chalkboard paint. I used three layers for these. Don't forget to cover the sides of your tops with clippings, too!
