We all agree that coloring is fun. But after you are done, there’s always a question – what to do with your completed coloring page? Framing is obviously a great way to put it to use and show off in front of your friends and family. But have you ever wondered are there even more creative and fresh ideas out there? If you love coloring, chips, and money-saving hacks just like me, these DIY projects will surely make your day!
The best thing about completed coloring pages and a Pringles can is that you can actually use them in lots of different smart ways! Most of the ideas will pop into your head while you are working on the base construction, which is super cheap and easy to make. You probably already have all the supplies in your household, and if not, then you can definitely get them for next to nothing!
Supplies Needed for This DIY Project:
- Pringles can
- Completed coloring page
- 2-sided adhesive tape
- Glue stick
Prepare all the materials that you’ll need. When ready, cut the adhesive tape and stick it to the long side of the can. Take your completed coloring page and press one side to the adhesive tape.
Wrap the page around the can and secure with another stripe of the adhesive. Make sure to stick it to the backside of your coloring design so when it’s secured, the adhesive tape will be completely hidden.
I printed my coloring page on a standard size paper. After I wrapped it around the can, some space was left uncovered. So I decided to decorate it with a nice ribbon I had left. You can choose any ribbon you like or even cover the gap with some colored or gift paper. Just cut the needed length and stick it to the can. I used a glue stick, but it’s even easier to secure it with the same 2 sided adhesive or basically any other glue.
Viola! Our project is ready. What a great and easy way to upcycle an empty can and show off your completed coloring page! Plus we didn’t spend any money at all, right?
Now moving on to the best part: take a look at some of the smart and cool uses for your decorated Pringles can!
