Easy DIY Upcycled Holiday Tin Can Decorations | Christmas decorations 🌟🎄

Are you in search of ideas to add some festive charm to your holiday decor? Check out these easy DIY upcycled tin can decorations that are perfect for Christmas. You can get creative and transform ordinary tin cans into beautiful ornaments and centerpieces that add a unique and eco-friendly touch to your holiday celebrations.

Hi there! I hope you're doing well. Today I'll show you a simple way to upcycle tin cans by turning them into cute holiday decorations. We will be using paint, faux greenery, twine, and more!

Video tutorial


Two tin cans

Craft twine


Paint-I'm using chalk and acrylic

Paint brushes

Faux greenery, and berries

Optional craft sticks, and mini wooden trees

Hot glue

craft foam blocks

Start by applying two coats of chalk paint to your tin cans, allowing them to dry between coats.

To start off, grab your brown paint and use it to paint branches onto your larger tin can. I suggest creating a few branches before adding the berries with the red paint. Once the berries are painted on, switch to the green paint and add a few leaves around the berries. For the smaller tin can, I recommend adding green and red dots to give it a unique look.

To begin, take your craft twine and wrap it around the upper section of your tin cans. While adding the twine, apply some hot glue and press it gently. Once you have covered the entire top section of the can, cut off any remaining twine and secure the end of the twine onto the can with some glue.

I decided to add my mini wooden trees onto my craft sticks, although it was optional. I thought it would make the trees more visible once they were inserted into the cans. To do this, I used hot glue to attach the trees to the craft sticks.

To complete my decorations, I added foam blocks and then decorated them with greenery and berries. Finally, I inserted a wooden tree on a craft stick in the center of the greenery. This was a simple upcycling project that I really enjoyed. Let me know if you try it out yourself. Thank you very much for visiting and crafting with me. I hope to see you soon.
