IN THE CAN

Your Home and Garden - - Your Projects -

Canis­ters are great for pre­sent­ing foodie gifts such as meringues and home­made bis­cuits or small items like jew­ellery or a beau­ti­ful ce­ramic or­na­ment or can­dle­holder (all care­fully wrapped in tis­sue pa­per, of course). Kitchen canis­ters are easy to come by at home­ware stores or keep an eye out at your lo­cal op-shop for ones.

STEP ONE Give your can­is­ter a light clean, then line it with tis­sue or bak­ing pa­per to pre­vent any sticky residue or dam­age to the in­side.

STEP TWO Ar­range your gifts snugly in­side, then close the lid and at­tach a nice gift tag with a rib­bon or piece of leather cord.

Canis­ters from Kmart. Gift tag from Fa­ther Rab­bit.
