Tin Can Planters are a perfect way to recycle and reuse an item destined for waste. They are not only great for the environment as they can be put to another use but also look good when upcycled.
It’s very easy just to pick up a 99p plant pot from your local discount store but it’s so much better to reuse and recycle. I’m pretty certain if I checked my recycling I have at least 2 or 3 cans a week in there.
There are so many ways you can transform your cans but I quite like this simple colourful method. Check out Pinterest for some interesting ideas.
Method For Tin Can Planters
- Ensure the can is clean inside and out and remove any labelling.
- With a large nail and hammer, pierce a few holes in the bottom of the can to provide drainage.
- Paint the Tin Can Planters using different coloured paint or all the same if you want them to be symmetrical.
- Allow the paint to dry and fill the planter with your chosen bloom. However, these type of planters is perfect for growing herbs as you can display these on your kitchen windowsill for easy access.
This is just a quick and simple way to add a little colour to your window ledge or garden. If after time the paint starts to look a little worn you can always repeat the process.
