Tin Can Planters



With Mother’s Day and the end of the school year coming up, families have plenty of reasons to give a potted plant as a gift. Why not make it extra special by creating some tin can planters? They are so easy to make, and kids will love adding their own personal touch by painting the tin cans. These little planters are sure to brighten up someone’s day this spring!

Materials Needed:

  • Tin cans
  • Painter’s tape
  • Acrylic paint
  • Drill
  • Plants

Step One: Drill a small hole in the bottom of each can. This will allow the soil for your plant to drain.

Step Two: Using the painter’s tape, tape around the top or bottom of the can.

Step Three: Paint the exposed part of the outside of the can with bright colors.

Step Four: After the paint has dried, remove the tape. Plant your greenery and enjoy!
