Soup Can Planters

17,574 Views
Early in September, Target started selling special edition Andy Warhol-themed tomato soup cans. I grew up on tomato soup and grilled cheese, so I picked up a few cans for lunch. After the soup was gone, the cans were too pretty to throw away.
Difficulty: Easy
After some thought I decided to reuse the cans as planters.
After cleaning the cans, I hammered a few drainage holes at the bottom of each can. Be careful not to get the labels too wet. If you should, just allow them to completely dry before moving on.
Then I applied a thin coat of Mod Podge over the labels to seal and protect the surface.
I purchased a few succulents from Home Depot and replanted them in each can.
I love the bright pop of color!
Simple and inexpensive!
