Picture of Five Ideas for Upcycling Pringles Can
I don't know about you, but there's nothing that  goes better with a hot dog better than Pringles and a bottle of root beer. Ok, now on to the topic. What to do with the Pringles Can when it's empty.

Here's just a few ideas...

Step 1: #1 Turn it into a vase for dried flowers

I really Like Dia de los Muertos. I've collected pieces over the years from all over. I wanted something to put my dried roses into that would work also in my collection. I thought of decorating an empty Pringles can that I was eating out of at the time. The ideas grew from there. You don't have to use a Pringles can, maybe your a tennis player & have empty canisters  from the tennis balls. The possiblities of repurposing something is limitless, so use your imagination. Today though, we are using a Pringles can

- Paint Pringles Can any colour you want.
- Allow to dry before applying each coat
- Use printed out pictures from the internet or paint free hand

*Nevermind the pumpkins, they are just background

Step 2: #2 Container for Mini/Small Christmas Ornaments

Have you recycled the plastic container those mini ornaments came in only to think about it after Christmas was over.
Use a pringles can! Make sure to stuff tissue paper or paper towels betweem each bulb to help prevent breakage. Feel free to paint the Pringles can 1st if you like. Or just label it XMAS ORNAMENTS...

Step 3: #3 Storage for Easter Eggs

I can never find that plastic bag that I bought the eggs in after Easter. I think my husband finds it and just puts it in the recycling. Anyways, instead of havin eggs taking up your junk drawer, falling out of that Misc. closet, store them in a pringles container, label and store away for next year!

It would fit soo many legos, also a great idea for storing legos too. I find them everywhere in my house

Great ideas!!! I still have 2 old cans in my shed with roller blade wheels in them...
This is a really great idea. I'm going to be painting one, and using it as a piggy bank. ^__^ Thank you.

This is actually great since you can stuff the yarn together very tightly. Also your yarn will smell like pringles - Win!
straycatmeow (author)  Eacon2 years ago
LOL, I usually wash the can first. You can also cut a little whole in the top and use it that way to keep your yarn tanlged free & out of the way while you're working on the project
that's a good idea with the yarn! (:


And sure thing! I'm painting my favorite character from my favorite show on it (Adventure Time) and I just started tonigh. (:
