Painted Tin Can Planters

Rebecca blogs at The Crafted Sparrow.  Lately her husband has been bringing home large tin cans from his restaurant when they get thrown away. “I love the idea of re-using them, but I just couldn’t look at the boring tin cans anymore,” Rebecca admits.


To spice up those boring tin cans, Rebecca decided to paint them, then use them for planters.  Stripes of bright summer colors definitely make these planters pop on her porch!  Rebecca also painted gold stripes on the cans, which really add a modern vibe.


If you love Rebecca’s idea as much as I do and want to see more pretty photos of how she used these cans inside as well as outside, visit her at The Crafted Sparrow.

  1. Love this idea. I was looking for ideas to use for a TON of those really large plastic Folgers coffee containers and this might be the ticket! I’ve been bringing them home from work when we finish coffee (I can’t throw anything away) so I have around 20 of them. lol
