It was fun to create these easy and inexpensive vases for our Thanksgiving table this year. Only took a few minutes and the kids enjoyed glazing the cans and arranging the flowers.
Tin Cans (soup, beans etc), labels removed
Festive Cardstock (I’m a fan of the 12″x12″ pads available at Michaels)
- Soak empty tin cans to easily remove labels.
- Choose cardstock and cut to height of can, just under the lip.
- Glue back of paper and wrap around the can.
- Cover with a couple of thin coats of Mod Podge and let dry.
- Fill with flowers.
I’m looking forward to making some winter-themed ones for the holidays. They can be used for more than just flower vases, too. Pen/pencil holders, dish brush container, craft containers. So many possibilities!
