Upcycle cans to a pen pot

So I fell down the pointers rabbit hole during the week and I decided to make myself a desk tidy/ pen pot for my cluttered desk.

It is made by using two cans, some paint, half a meter of ribbon and some super glue.

So to start off wash and dry the cans and make sure there is no sharp edges where the cans were opened. Then paint them, use a few layers to give a good texture. I used a tester pot of wall paint but acrylic works great.

Measure out the ribbon by wrapping it around the can and then secure. You need to use a strong glue so either super glue or a hot glue gun works well. Then stick the two cans together using the glue to make the pen pots together.
