Empty canister (coffee and baby formula cans work great!)
Red, white & blue spray paint ( I used latex paint and brushed it on.)
painter's or masking tape
Step 1: Using a clean, dry can, paint outside white.
Step 2: Using painter's or masking tape, wrap tape around canister to indicate where your white stripes will be. Stripes can be any thickness!
Step 3: For red and blue stripes, paint non-tapes areas.
Now you have a functional and pretty Independence Day decoration, ready for a rockin' bar-b-que!
