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.

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
