Christmas Can Craft with Gorilla Adhesive Spray – Plus A Giveaway!

Gorilla Spray Adhesive

I don’t know about you but I always have the best of intentions when the Christmas season starts to get to work early on making goodies to take to all our friends and neighbors. I always plan on making homemade Christmas candy, hand-crafting gifts, creating elaborate cards, and sharing with everyone early in the month.

Then all of the sudden it’s a few days before Christmas, I have a million things still left on my plate. Parties, recitals, dinners, concerts, and programs… I’ll just stop there. And then I realize I never did anything to wish any of our neighbors, co-workers, and other friends a Merry Christmas. And let’s not even get started on the guilt I start to feel, which I’m pretty sure is not the main emotion you should be having around the holidays.

I decided I am NOT doing that again this year! I knew that while my heart is in the right place I just don’t have the time or energy to spend hours and hours on complicated gifts for the many people in our lives. Steph gave me the brilliant idea of using small Pringles cans as the base for a little gift of sweet treats to take to those we love.

I quickly began gathering up what I’d need. Pringles cans, scrapbook paper, paper cutter, scissors, and perhaps one of the most important things – something to adhere the paper to the can. I needed something that would be quick, easy, clean, and of course, stick well!

Gorilla Spray Adhesive

I realized now would be the perfect time to try out Gorilla Spray Adhesive. Have you heard of it before? After finding out all of its qualities it sounded like the perfect fit for my project. Did you know Gorilla Spray Adhesive:

  • Bonds to wood, metal, fabric, foam, paper, glass, and more!
  • Is photo safe
  • Has a fine mist spray for even application
  • Is non-yellowing
  • Has a wide pad comfort nozzle
  • Is repositionable
  • Meets the new VOC standard
  • Dries permanently

I was really anxious to get going on my project and I was crossing my fingers the spray would work as well as it seemed. Spoiler alert – it did! I can’t wait to show you how easy this little Christmas Can craft was to throw together.


First, empty out a few small Pringles cans. I’m sure your children won’t mind helping you out with that. 😉

Second, there will be crumbs. Just wipe out with a damp cloth.

Third, cut your scrapbooking paper to the size of the can. I just held the paper up to the can, made a little tick mark, and cut it with my paper cutter.

Fourth, use your Gorilla Spray Adhesive to adhere the scrapbook paper to the can. It was really easy to do this part. Follow the instructions on the back and it will work perfectly for you. Just a few tips (that are mentioned on the can): shake the can well, after you spray your material wait just a minute to let the adhesive get tacky, and spray both materials for maximum bonding.

I loved how quickly I was able to wrap the paper around the can after using the Gorilla Spray Adhesive. With this spray, I didn’t have to worry about holding things in place or waiting for long periods for drying time. I sprayed, placed, wrapped, and was ready to move on.

You can really make these crafty cans your own by your choice of papers or other materials to use with them. This year my Christmas theme is simplistic so I stuck with just one simple paper. But you could layer different papers, colors, ribbons, lace, rope, etc. to add a bit of pop to your project!

Next, fill your cans with goodies. For today I chose to throw in some quick Christmas candy from the store. Other ideas could include

  • Mini candy canes
  • Cookies
  • Homemade caramels
  • Peppermint Bark
  • Hot chocolate packets

Finally, use some twine, jute or ribbon to tie a gift tag to the can.

And voilà, you’re done! No stress, no mess, and you can now check off at least one item on your holiday to-do list!

  2. This is such a cute idea! And economical, which helps a lot. As my kids want to pass out candy to their teacher’s. I housebound and a subscriber and really enjoy getting your email’s full of great ideas. Thanks!

  3. I haven’t tried the new Gorilla Glue spray yet, I’m going to make the craft with the small Pringle cans. I think it’s a great holiday gift.

  4. I would like to try making some of these crafts with the Gorilla Spray Adhesive! These are very creative and festive. Great gifts! 🙂

  5. Thanks for sharing this great craft . I can totally relate to the Christmas gift dilemma.
    I always have elaborate homemade gift ideas,then time runs away from me.
    I would use it to make this craft and Christmas ornaments.

  6. Thanks for sharing the craft idea. I can totally relate to having elaborate ideas for homemade gifts and then time runs away from me.
    My kiddos and I love to do crafts! I would love to try this craft,with the small Pringles cans and cans of different sizes too. I would fill the small cans with Christmas m&m’s and the other cans with homemade goodies. I think we will also try using the gorilla adhesive spray glue for when we do homemade ornaments.

  7. Thanks for sharing this awesome Christmas Can Craft with Gorilla Glue !
    I can totally relate to having elaborate ideas for making homemade gifts,then having time run away from me.
    I think that I would use your idea of cans, though I would use different sizes of cans.. For the small Pringles cans, I would put green & red m&m’s in . Then I would use Coffee cans for homemade goodies . I think I would try Gorilla adhesive for making ornaments.

  8. Love the idea, super cute! We use gorilla glue all the time, can’t wait to try some of this new spray for our projects too. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Very cute project. Gorilla Glue is a good quality product so I trust their adhesive spray will be perfect for projects like these.
    I also like your nail polish. I have a similar color from Yves Rocher.

  10. Thanks for a great idea! I’m glad I’m not the only one with good intentions that run out of time and then wind up giving candles as gifts. I’m going with your idea with a twist. I’m going with the larger Pringles can and filling it with homemade Peppermint Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn.

    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  11. What a great idea! You can do this not only for Christmas, but all year long (birthday favors, baby showers, Halloween and other holidays)! Thank you for the chance to win! I’m not sure if my name popped up or my nickname “Robyn853”. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  12. I honestly did not know about the Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive, love the decor ideas, going to have to pick some of that up so I can get more decorating done!

  13. I love this idea because I am always so busy being the one putting on Christmas dinner that I forget a lot of people and this would be so easy to make ahead and have ready for those that I have forgotten about!

  14. Thanks for sharing this great craft.I can totally relate,to having big plans for homemade gifts for the holidays.
    I love to bake, so I would fill the pringle cans with homemade cookies.

  15. Super cute idea! I’ve done something like this except with coffee canisters. Never thought of using them for a Christmas gift though, mostly just for desk organization.

  16. I’d like to try your idea of using the empty Pringles cans and scrapbooking paper. I like that the Gorilla Spray Adhesive dries quickly enough so that you don’t have to stand there a long time holding the paper in place until the glue dries. It’s a clever idea to repurpose the Pringles cans in that way.

  17. I’m going to steal your idea, and also use the larger chip cans for gifts of makeup brushes, makeup pencils, etc.

  18. i love christmas crafts, and what a great way to recycle those cans. coffee cans could also be used for larger items.

  19. I love your idea of covering cans. I can think of so many things to put in them. They would be great to hand out at a family gatherings for the holidays. Thanks for the wonderful idea….

  20. We always have Gorilla Glue in some form around. I have yet to try the spray adhesive and I love how you used it.

  21. I used to do this with the cans years ago. Of course didn’t have the Gorilla glue. The spray seems easy to use.

  22. Love quick but thoughtful ideas! 🙂 also love gorilla tape so im exvited they came out with this spray! Cant wait to try it 😉

  23. I am going to get some today. I would love to make Christmas wreaths & other crafts with this Gorilla spray adhesive. Less mess!!

  24. Great little Christmas gift craft! I love that you can spray the glue to the can and paper and it drys right away.

  25. I absolutely love this idea! My girls will love helping me pit then together. Thank you for such an awesome, yet not time consuming idea.

  26. I remember when I had the pep you have to do all those cute things your doing Right now I just got out of hospital and I feel very weak ….I’m on heart medicine right now for enlarged heart ,and AFIB but to see all your items makes me happy

    • Mary,

      I do hope you get feeling better. Not to make light of your sorrow and suffering, but I can’t help but think you have so much love in your enlarged heart. Merry Christmas, friend. May you have happiness in your healing and giving season of love.


  27. My boys would love this for sure, especially the eating the Pringles. I would love the no liquid glue all over my table part 🙂

  28. I would definitely use it to make my faux fireplace I have been dreaming about every Christmas since living here. We dont have a fireplace and for me it just is not Christmas-y to not have a fireplace for stockings 😉

    • I agree! You’ve got to have a fireplace for Christmas! 🙂 Post a picture if you end up making it – I’d love to see what you come up with!
