Can-Do Cans

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2006


Use our red, white, and blue designs to cover empty tin cans, then fill them with flowers (we chose sweet pea and veronica), utensils, breadsticks, and more.


  1. Wash and dry an empty can.

  2. Download and print the template, adjusting size as necessary (120 percent for a 4 1/2-inch-tall can). Cut out.

  3. Place paper wrong side up; adhere double-sided tape along each short end.

  4. Align and stick one end to can; wrap paper around can, then secure the other end.
