5 Shocking Ways to Upcycle Tin Cans

by Erica Rome Washington |

Here at River Birch, we take our responsibility to the environment seriously so we created our Tin Can Candle out of reused Tin Cans. Our tins can be reused after they are finished burning in many ways, giving the tin its 3rd use! Once there is about 1/2 inch of wax remaining, you can easily remove the wax from the tin to be made into something eye-catching and practical. To learn how to remove the wax, check out this quick and easy YouTube tutorial

Here are some fun and creative ways to upcycle tin cans.

1.  Decorative Vases

Whether as centerpieces for an event or just beautiful home decor, tin cans are a great choice for a sustainable centerpiece. 


2.  Reuse old tin cans as planters. 

 Perfect for an indoor herb garden!

3. Makeup Organizer

Organize makeup brushes, eyeliners, and more!

4. Lamp Shade

This one is a little more challenging but definitely worth it! Creates unique lighting that you won't find in stores. 

5. Create a pen and pencil holder

Tin cans make a perfect pen and pencil holder for your desk.  Great for paint brushes, too!
