What You Need

  • Faux leather in jade, $9 per yard, muranoinc.net;
  • Stamps: For a similar look, try printblockstamps.etsy.com
  • scissors
  • pouncer
  • crafts paint
  • wood-block boarder stamp
  • spray mount
  • hot glue/glue gun

Step 1

Cut a piece of faux leather the height of an empty can plus an inch and long enough to wrap around it. Wrap the material around the can, folding the excess over the can’s top edge to create a crease.

Step 2

Remove it, then use a pouncer to coat a wood-block border stamp with crafts paint. Stamp about an inch below the top edge of the material so the crease you made runs through the center of the design. At the bottom edge, stamp the design so you see only half of it. Let dry.

Step 3

Stamp your main design across the center of the material. Let it dry, then spray-mount the faux leather to the can. Fold the top edge over the can and hot-glue it to the inside.
