Upcycled Coffee Can Craft Ideas
I don’t craft much, but when I do, it’s usually in the form of upcycling!
Upcycling is a great way to reduce waste. It differs slightly from simply “reusing” items because with upcycling, you are technically turning them into something different and creative. (Why should you reduce waste? Read about it here.)
If you are actively trying reduce your waste or go “zero waste”, you might be hoarding your coffee cans like I am. I just can’t toss them without trying to craft them into something else that is useful. Coffee cans are always great for storage, but you can also make them into something fun/beautiful/practical/decorative!
So get those creative juices flowing and check out these fun ways to upcycle coffee cans!
