DIY Marbled Canister

This is my last of my three part shaving cream marble project series.  You may remember I shared a DIY Marbled Notebook and a week later these DIY Marbled Clothes Pins.  Well, I got so excited when I made the notebook that I instantly marbled the clothes pins and todays’ DIY Marbled Canister!

The steps for creating this marbled pattern are in my previous Marbled Notebook post.  It’s so simple and takes about 3 minutes to do one label.  Hop over to see how fast this process is!

Once you have your paper labels marbled and dried, it’s time to add them to the metal canister.

I couldn’t easily remove the steakhouse label from my canister so I measure the height of it and cut my marbled labels to match, if not just a little bigger.

DIY Marbled Canister steps
My marbled labels did not cover the entire canister so I was sure to place the seams of my labels in the back of the canister.  I turned it so you could see the seam below, it’s still very faint.
