Pet Food Canister

One of the best ways to store your pet’s food is not in the floppy bag, but rather in more sturdy plastic containers or large tin.

You know those popcorn tins you get at Christmas that seem like they will last forever……well, when forever is over you can wash them out, paint them and decorate with some vinyl and fill with your dog or cat food!

I found a Christmas tin at a garage sale for 50¢, picked up a can of yellow spray paint, cut some fun vinyl with my Silhouette Craft cutter, hot glued cute ribbon around the lid and in no time I had a cute storage container for Cullen’s favorite Pedigree Dog Food, all for only a few dollars.

A lot cheaper than the $50 Ballard Designs wants.

I LOVE the way my designer pet food canister turned out!………and Ballard Designs doesn’t offer yellow! {wink}

 I will definately be making one!

I also am thinking of making a few to put out on the front porch to hold kid's toys that are out there (little action figurines, cars, etc)

This is a neat idea.  I might have to try this with the cat food.
