DIY Nautical Canister

Nautical theme always interests me, especially the deep blue color against white, it’s just beauty. And all the symbols, like an anchor, a buoy, a steering wheel, ship, lighthouse and many more are fantastic to be a focal point to something with nautical theme decor. This time I made a DIY nautical canister; a white and navy blue with nautical symbols of an anchor and a steering wheel. It’s an upcyling canister that I made into this nice looking nautical canister. Later you will learn how easy it is to make your own DIY Nautical Canister.

Things To Prepare

I guess everyone would have some old or used canister, but for this nautical project, I choose a box shape not cylinder canister. Here are the list of supplies you will be needed to make my DIY nautical canister:

  • Used canister
  • Dark blue acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Jute rope
  • Black marker
  • Hot glue

How To Make

It does have a little drawing involved in making this coastal diy, but you can use sticker, or stencil. Anyway, besides the drawing part, the rest of the steps are easy and quick to do, let’s find out here on below tutorial and picture shown above :

  1. Clean the canister and make sure no grease on the surface is left. Paint the canister with white paint. Leave it dry.
  2. Paint the canister lid with dark blue paint after the white paint. leave it dry.
  3. Take a jute rope and make a frame on the two sides of the canister. Glue the jute rope onto the canister with hot glue.
  4. Draw an anchor and a steering wheel on each framed side on the canister by using a black marker. Finished!

The canister suddenly has a new look, a nautical look! Isn’t it easy and quick to make? Please, try to make one yourself, and be surprised by the result. This diy nautical canister would look great sitting on your mantel, side table or kitchen to go along with the rest of your coastal decorations. Have fun!
