Holiday Coffee Containers

In three easy steps you can convert a common coffee canister into a decorative Holiday container!

Holiday Coffee Containers

What you need

Folgers Coffee 34.5 or 39 ounce canister


I found this on line, used it with my kids and thought I would share it. There are festive designs already made – or you can print a blank template (my favorite )and have the kids design their own unique design.

I like it because it saves me some money and I like to recycle.

  1. I’m thinking that if you have old christmas cards from people you have saved, you can use the front of the card as your pictures to put on the coffee cans. I have some beautiful cards I’m going to try to use. :) Great craft idea, thanks for sharing

  2. So glad I found your site. 20+ years ago I made a special box for my Mother, but we called it The Love Box. She passed away in 1996. Over the years the poem became dry & brittle & started falling apart, but I still have the box. Your poem is the same as the one on the box I had made except mine was filled with love instead of hugs. Now I can replace the poem and make some more boxes for my daughters. Thank you.


  3. You could put in dry ingredients for a cake, cookie, cupcake, brownie etc. recipe. Add the recipe on a tag tied with a ribbon/bow ..

  4. Very good idea until Folgers got greedy and started charging for the downloads (2009).
