Recycled Pringles Can Gift Kits


Pringle’s cans are great for gift wrapping.  They can be cleverly wrapped and hold the perfect sized cookie for Christmas wrapped like a Mummy for Halloween.   These fun ideas inspired these Recycled Pringles Can Gift Kits with a “pull me” tag and ribbon.  The long vertical shape is perfect for this.


  • Pringles can
  • Decorative paper
  • Ribbon
  • Gifts of your choosing
  • Marker


STEP 1: Choose your gift.

STEP 2: Make a “pull me” tag with decorative paper and attach it to the end of the ribbon.

STEP 3: Tie all your gifts together with ribbon.

STEP 4: Decorate your Pringles can and lid.

STEP 5: Insert them into your decorated Pringles can. Allow the “pull me” tag to hang out of the top of the can.

Consider using plain paper to decorate your can and allow your kids to draw pictures on it with markers or crayons.
