JIF Can Makeover

My favorite everyday snack!

My favorite everyday snack!

Alex teases me all the time about the large amounts of peanut butter that I eat.  I can’t help it!  I eat an apple with peanut butter almost everyday!  It is a great healthy snack and I never really seem to get tired of it.  I am not sure what it is about peanut butter with apples, but it makes me feel like I am eating something naughty but it is actually a healthy snack!  When I was heavily drinking Shakeology every morning, Alex bought a huge can of peanut butter and it was amazing how quickly we went through it!  (Little does he know I have a stash of peanut butter at school so I actually eat more than he can imagine! lol)

I have like 4 of these cans that are in need of a Pinterest-worthy craft project and today I decided to get with it.

We recently moved the dog food out to the garage…which I am not a huge fan of because in the morning it seems like I am always in a hurry and it is a pain to have to go out to the garage and upstairs to feed the pups.  Awhile back, I had decided to do a treat canister with one of my JIF containers.  So when I finally sat down to do it, I decided a food canister was also necessary!  I am pretty pleased with the results and it took me like 20 minutes.

Cut your 12x12" paper at 5 13/16"  I used 2 pieces for both cans, cutting an extra 4 1/2" x 5 13/16" for the back part.

Get out your handy dandy Mod Podge!

I am not sure why I do not use this stuff more often!  I am always pleased with the results!

Paint some of the Mod Podge on the cannister.

Line up the scrapbook paper of your choice.  I lined mine up with the bottom so that it didn't interfere with the lid.

Add whatever you want the canister to say and voila!

Overall this was a super fun and quick craft to do with a recycled container!  Oh how I love projects that are complete upcycles!  They turned out super cute and my mind is already swirling with ideas to do with the next two canisters sitting in my closet!  This would be a fun project to do with the kids!  Who says my peanut butter addiction can’t have its perks?!
