{DIY Art Supply Organizer} Pallete of Colors

In September I started saving cans.  I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but after seeing a few craft blogs with cans used for crayons I decided to give it a try.  Then I thought “why stop at crayons?”.   I made a whole “coloring” organizer!

Palette of Colors

What you will need:
tin cans of various sizes- atleast six for the crayons
Scrapbook paper
acrylic paints of various colors
flowers and bows if you want it girly!
a mdf board… mine was a 12X12
E600 glue

As you can see I just painted the insides of the cans… the ones in the back will separte the crayon colors and the ones in the front are for markers, pens/ pencils and coloring pencils.  The tuna cans will be use for odds and ends.   I also ModPodged some scrapbook paper onto the outsides of the cans.  Then I just glued it down with the E-600 to my mdf board that was covered with scrapbook paper.
 I then added a bow and glued down some flowers!  So Easy!!!  Now my girls love keeping all the colors in their separate tins.

Happy Creating!!!
