10 new uses tuesday pringles cans

10 New Uses Tuesday {Pringles Cans}

Yeah, that seems rather random, but as you can probably guess, there was a sale and a coupon and that is what my family had in their lunch last week. :)

You know I couldn’t just toss those cans, right?

So here are a few things you can do with them, 10 to be exact.

1. Cupcake Liner Storage: It is the perfect size to store all of those adorably patterned cupcake liners around the kitchen. 

2. Grocery Bag Dispenser: Cut a hole in the lid and stuff a bunch of bags inside for a compact grocery bag dispenser. I like this idea of having  a few out where I need them instead of making multiple trips to the pantry to get more.

3. Spaghetti Storage: When you get the large bags but don’t use them all for dinner, store the unused spaghetti in a Pringles can, of course clean it out first :).

4. Artwork Tube: As a teacher and a parent, I know what happens to artwork many times when it is stuffed into a backpack, crumpled and/or folded. Throw a Pringles can in the backpack and you can roll up artwork and get it home safely without any folds.

5. Stationary Container: Decorate and cut to desired size for pens, markers, dowels or whatever else around your desk or craft area.

6. Bracelets: Cut off pieces in whatever thickness you want, decorate them and glue them to size. Fun project for multiple ages.

7. Vase: Decorate the outside and either use it for faux or handmade flowers or slip a slim glass inside to hold water for fresh flowers.

8. Marble Painting: Put a piece of paper inside the tube and then marbles rolled in paint. Put the lid on and shake it up!

9. Fine Motor Game: Use a hole punch to put holes in the lid and put pipe cleaners or other thin item through.

10. Scrap Ribbon Storage: I have one in my craft area just for little pieces of ribbon, perfect size.

    Thanks for the great ideas. Definitely gonna do some of these! A pringles can is also the perfect size for holding an icing bag to fill.
