Who doesn’t love Pringles? The chips stay intact better than bagged versions and they come in that handy cardboard tube. But what to do with the empty canisters? It seems rather wasteful to just throw them away. I’ve always thought I should turn them into something useful but didn’t know where to start. So, I turned to the crafty bloggers and creators on the web to find these clever Pringles can hacks. From your bedside table to your kitchen table, there are so many different ways to use Pringles cans! You can even get the kids together and do a craft time project together.
