Tin Can Organizer -I LOVE IT !!

                     "Tin Can Organizer"

       After see this project on Pinterest

            I had to give it a try...........

Here is how I did it:

I gathered the following (as shown):

Empty Paint can
6 different sized tin cans
12 each: bolts, washers, nuts (2 for each can)
1 large nail
Sharpie (for marking where to drill holes)
Drill bits:  1 smaller and 1 the same size or a little larger then the size of my bolt

First, I marked where I wanted my holes to be on the tin cans:


 Next, using my nail and hammer, I punctured holes in the tin can where I had marked for holes:

Then, using the smaller bit, I enlarged each hole with my drill just enough to get my larger bit to fit inside and create a hole that fits the bolt:

I chose to paint all the cans and bucket different colors instead of decorating with paper, but whichever fits your own style definitely works:

When everything was dry, I marked the bucket to match the holes I had marked on the tin cans, and then punctured and drilled:

Everything was now ready to attach, so I placed the bolt inside the tin can pointing outward and pushed it through the bucket hole, and after adding my washer, I screwed in the nut to securely attach the tin can to the bucket  - and continued to add all the bolts/ washers/ nuts to each can until all of the cans were attached!!

  1. if you have a plastic lazy susan you could glue it to the bottom of the large can or just set it on top of your work surface. this makes it a little easier to access whats inside. i do it with the 5 gallon bucket tool organizers. makes finding the tool you need a lot easier. spin away.
