Hanging Tin Can Planters

We all eat food from a can from time to time. You recycle the can and forget about it. Why not paint those cans, put a pretty flower in them and spruce up your yard?

What you need:

  • Tin Cans
  • A Hammer
  • A Drill
  • Dirt
  • Various Colors of Paint
  • Nails
  • Flowers

What you do:

  1. Take off any labels, make sure to scrub off any glue.
  2. Get your favorite colors of paint and make your tin cans colorful!
  3. Drill a small hole into the back of the tin can.
  4. Nail the tin can to your fence.
  5. After your paint drys, fill your cans with freshly fertilised soil.
  6. Plant your favorite flowers!

A few ideas:

  • Plant a crawling vine in your tin can and hang it on the bottom of your fence. Let the vine crawl up the fence.
  • Make a rainbow of cans, all different colored cans and flowers.
