Did you know you can turn a can into a pretty flower planter?  In just a couple of steps, you can add colorful decor to your home by repurposing an empty can of nuts.  These mini planters will make a great Mother's day gift, filled with her favorite plant or silk flowers.

SUPPLIES:

Fake Flowers
or Live Plant


HOW TO:
Peel the labels off of the cans

Use colorful fabric

Measure and cut the width of the fabric to fit around the can. 
  I chose a sunny yellow polka dot fabric.  Amazon has a nice selection to choose from.

Spray the adhesive on the fabric. 
If you are making these with children you might want to use

Place the cut fabric around the can.

Then measure and cut the ribbon.
Glue the ribbon around the top of the can.

There are so many fun ways to use these mini planters:  Place a live or fake flowering plant inside and put the lid on the bottom for added color.  If you plan on using a live plant, make sure to drill holes in the bottom of the can for drainage.  I cut the stems of silk flowers so they fit inside the can.

Some of the cans have different color lids.  
It is fun to change out the lids for a different look.

Or no lid at all

  1. What a fun way to repurpose nut cans! I don't have any nut cans, but I do have cans from my flavored coffee. I will have to try this. I love the different patterns and colors of the fabric that you used. They turned out so pretty! Pinning!
