Step 1: Supplies

For this cute project the items you are going to need are...

  • Some Cans I did 3
  • Some Buttons
  • A hot glue gun
  • Some beads
  • Yarn/String

Step 2: Your First Can

For my first can I decided to hot glue buttons of all shapes sizes and color to my can.

Step 3: Second Can

I decided for my second can I could use string you can use as many or as little colors as you would like I used 3 different colors. For this I liked to put about 3 inches of string out and then put a little dab of glue on the string to keep it in place.

Step 4: Last Can

For my last can I decided to go with beads. You just need hot glue and a lot of beads depending on how big your can is for this I decided to go with a smaller can and for each row I ended up using 32 buttons.
