DIY Andy Warhol Soup Can Organizers

created at: 09/20/2012

Target, in collaboration with Campbell's, recently released a limited edition line of Andy Warhol soup cans in celebration of the 50th anniversary of his famous screen print series. While I've been tempted to pick up a few, I don't really know what I'd do with them. Store them indefinitely on a shelf? Eat the contents; then what?     

Fortunately, Sherry at Young House Love has a solution for this particular dilemma: turn them into office organizers! The idea is simple (and certainly not 'new'), but I love her incorporation of cork-lined interiors. It adds that perfect amount of something, you know? Check out her tutorial right here!

While we're on the subject, what would you do with these Andy Warhol soup cans?

Use the contents but open from the bottom instead of the top. Fill them with cement and use them as bookends.

Dude...I just got mine yesterday. Right now they're sitting on my bookshelf. This could be awesome. At least my husband will stop talking about the day in the future that they're going to explode and give us botulism. :) xo

I just saw an end cap of those at Target the other day. It's not often you see a pink label on a soup can!

These are so pretty who would have thunk it from a soup can? I love the colors.

I would use them just as they are here or for my paint brushes.
