Painted Canister Holder & Wine Glass


This is a gift I made for my sister and my mother.
The canister's were actually Bailey's canisters. The canisters were given to me by a friend that works in bar & restaurant...I recycled it by painting them with enamal paint and purchased wine glasses from what use to be a 99 cent store for only $1.19 each. All together I only spent about $ about bargin and savings.

I turned two plain objects into elegant decor pieces. 



The center around the canister of first picture is a piece of art paper...before I placed it on the canister, I painted the paper first with acrylic paint then I stamped it with ink. I then painted flowers over the background. Using Mod Podge, I carefully decoupaged it on the can...I placed the mod podge on the can first a section at a time, placing the paper and pressing as I add mod podge...mod podge will smudge the stamping ink once you start layering it on top of paper...I layered it using one stroke at a time on each section until it dried to prevent ink smudge. Then I gave it another top layer.

There are different kinds of mod podge. I used Mod Podge Gloss Luster by Plaid.


  1. I love these too -but don't think Iwould have the patience

  2. Thank you Patricia. It's really easy to do. Challenge yourself and see where it takes you.


  3. I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
