Barbie Furniture from Tuna Cans

 Not long ago a friend brought over this set of Barbie furniture that she made from tuna cans and gave it to my girls. I think it is pretty cute and thought I would share the idea with you all in case any of you know a girl that needs new barbie furniture.
 She simply opened the tune can but didn't take the lid completely off. Then she covered everything with fabric using glue. Inside the can she put stuffing and then glued a piece of cloth that she had tucked in over top. To make the footstool you do take the tuna lid off.

Megan and Mara's barbies are happy with their new chairs.

I am linking this up to Jackie's Fix it up Friday. You should go check out her cute burlap covered box and then link up your own "Fix it up" project.

What a clever idea. I would never have thought of using tuna cans for Barbie furniture. I will have to remember this. Thanks so much for linking up!

These are SUPER cute! I remember my Mom using a cornmeal can to make a high-backed arm chair (cut out the cardboard to make a desire shape for the back of the chair and fill similarly to these tuna cans) and a shoe box with lid and 4 chop sticks to make a canopy bed for my barbies when I was little.

I NEVER would have thought to use tuna cans! What a great idea!

This is very cute, and my daughter is just getting into Barbies! I wonder if the tuna can from this week's meals is still in the recycling bin...
