  2. Paint each dowel rod with Lime green and let dry.
  3. Following directions on Mod Podge apply papers to inside of each lid. Let dry. 
  4. Cut papers to fit coffee can. I used random pieces of scrapbook paper that I liked and Mod Podged each piece overlapping until can was covered. Let dry. 
  5. Hot Glue dowel rods to the back of each lid flower.
