    What about rust from the can? Over the next few weeks when you water your plants , the cans will start rusting and the surface where the cans will be sitting. I love to hear what you suggest. I have lots of cans I could put to use...

    I used to be able to save things like mixed nut containers.I would then find remnants of wall paper borders at thrift stores and cover them. I used them for cookie packages for gifts or bake sales.
