Pringles Santa

Cover the top portion of the can with peach-coloured felt to simulate skin tone. Add googly eyes, a cotton-ball beard and hair, red felt for a coat and hat, and white felt for ermine trim. Apply the felt, cotton beard and hair with hot glue.

Marbling, Pringles-Can Style

Marbling is a painting technique that originated in 12th-century Japan. In Europe, the technique was used by book binders to create decorative end papers for their books. You can recreate a form of marbling using a Pringles can, a marble and some paint. Put a piece of paper inside a Pringles can so it lines the interior. Put a selection of paints in dishes. Submerge a marble in a dish of paint, then put it inside a capped Pringles can and shake it. The paint will transfer from the marble onto the paper in a random fashion. Repeat the process with all of the selected paints.

Vintage Container

Either choose pages from a vintage magazine or newspaper or create your own vintage art and affix it to the Pringles can with craft glue. Cover the can with varnish.
