My map and burlap soup can pencil holders were featured this past Saturday on Adore Your Space in Cathy’s Easy Organization post. Also featured were these super cute Andy Warhol Campbell’s soup can pencil holders by Sherri at Young House Love.
The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw them was; WALL ART! I just heart making cheap and easy ‘art and these as soup can label art would look amazing in our kitchen.
Hubby and I were running errands later that day and I made him take a detour to Target. As far as I know they’re only selling there and are a limited edition. So if you want some, drop your computer and run and get some NOW! We had to go to three Target stores to get the four cans. My husband’s so great.
On second thought, maybe it’s better to call first. Whish we would have thought of that before driving all over town!
Here are the product codes for each can, because they probably won’t know what you’re taking about when you call:
Once we had safely gotten them home, I very very carefully peeled away the labels and measured them for my frames. Since I was planning to use IKEA frames I needed to see what size I would have to buy.
The Ribba Frame fit the label exactly and was only $1.99. I scooped up four frames and spent a whopping $8. Btw, the soup cans were only 75 cents each.
The only downside to these frames is that they really weren’t meant for hanging. They do come with a little piece of hanging hardware, but it’s tucked deep inside and you would have to use a super long nail to reach it.
So I went to Michael’s and got a lifetime supply of sawtooth hangers (it was the only quantity they had).
The glue residue and the curling of the labels was driving me crazy and making it impossible to position them behind the mat. So I got a regular piece of paper slightly larger than the label and stuck them together.
Once I positioned it and taped one side of the label/paper to the mat I folded the ingredient part and hid it behind
This super easy and cheap little soup can label art project only cost around $10 and looks amazing in our kitchen.
BTW, if you can’t find these Andy Warhol cans you could use the regular Campbell’s red can labels. I think they would look adorable framed too.
