I made this canister set from an old set from the 70’s that were made from oak and had flowers painted on them. I just sanded and painted them and then added book plates. I found some old ceramic knobs for the top. I see these kind of canisters at yard sales and thrift stores all the time.
- old canister set
- sand paper
- book plates
- knobs for top
Sand canisters to remove old varnish and painted design if there is one.
Paint the canisters with craft paint in whatever color you like.
Measure the same distance from the bottom on all the canisters. Attach the book plates using screws or small nails.
Attach knobs to canister tops.
I printed up labels on scrapbook paper and then cut them to fit. Sometimes I put holiday appropriate words in the slots just for fun.
