10 Ways to Upcycle Coffee Cans


Upcycle Coffee Cans

Don’t throw those empty coffee cans away! We put together some pretty awesome ways you can upcycle coffee cans and put them to good use once again. I think my favorite way is to use them as planters. Personally, I think the metal cans would even look better as planters, don’t you think? Maybe even spray paint them with chalkboard paint.

We’d love to hear your creative ways you reuse your empty coffee cans.
