In a bit of my cleaning sprees, (they are getting fewer and more far between this Summer) I found a few things that initially looked ready for the trash bin. But on second glance, there is something to be made here.
This tin can was large and rusted. Rusty and beautiful. With a quick bit of red spray paint, this rusty old can turned into a beautiful planter.
You can't really see it in the picture very well, but the rust gave the can some really cool texture that I was really diggin' after the paint.
I added a little bit of greenery I had in the closet, of all places, and it still needed something.
With the Fourth of July coming up, it was time to make a quick patriotic pick. So I rummaged through the closet, cleaning as I went, and found a few skewers and some card-stock scraps.
I cut a few stars, taped them over the skewer, and stuck it in the greenery.
This cute, free planter is now at home on our front porch. Easy peasy!
