How to Make


Wash and clean your tins and remove the labels, turn them upside down and use a nail and hammer to make 3 holes in the bottom of the can, this will let the excess water drain away.


Paint your tins with a coat of light coloured paint, this stage is optional but will allow the Washi tape designs to be seen easier.


Wrap the lengths of Washi tape around the tin, working from the top to the bottom.


Paint your tins with two coats of outdoor varnish, inside and out, leave to dry
