What Can You Do With a Smashed Rusty Tin Can?

Gardening on May 13, 2016
Don't throw it away! Make it into a rustic planter and fill it with succulent cuttings. I found this rusty treasure while hiking in the woods. I love all things rusty so there was no way I was going to leave it lying there. I knew I would find a purpose for it- and I did. The opening was very small so I filled it with a bit of soil and planted the tiny succulents and filled in with moss. I love unusual planters for my plants.

    My fingers are almost bleeding from looking at that rusty jagged lid. Bring out the tetanus shots...scary.
