Simple Glass Canister Repurpose

Introduction: Simple Glass Canister Repurpose

About: I am liking the flexible schedule of retirement to do things and love this site for ideas to amuse myself.

This is from my sister whom I visited recently in Colorado. When I saw this I told her I had to make her famous by posting her idea on Instrustables.com. Problem, she found these wonderful glass holiday canisters with a not so year round decoration. Unable to come up with any way to remove the decal this is what she did to re purpose them for year round use.

Materials:
Set of canisters with undesirable year round decals.
Black board paint
Brush
Chalk

Step 1:

My sister obtained chalk board paint from the craft store and covered the decal.

Step 2:

After the paint dries it is ready to fill up and label with a simple piece of chalk. This system is flexible as you are not limited to a single label and can simply wipe off the chalk and re-label the canister for what ever material or item you wish to store in it.

Step 3:

Voila! Wonderfully re purposed holiday canisters to impress your friends and family.
