Unleash your artistic side with these Mosaic Tin Cans! A gorgeous way to reuse those tin cans around the house and magically turn them into pieces of creativity!

First time I saw this, I thought I was going to cut tiny, bitsy tiles or rocks, but the fact that you are using styro-foams here, you can easily cut the pieces properly and also customize them with colors as much as you want! Letters can also be included -just print them from your computer although be cautious on the font size. This DIY project makes a great gift, decoration or storage containers. For my own mosaic tin cans -I’m planning to create one for each of my kids where they store their pencils, pens or crayons. I’m going to use letters for their names as well as some collage of their pictures. I’m so excited.

How about you? What other ideas can you include for this project? I’d love to hear them!
