Start with a clean coffee can and lid. I used patterned shelf liner and some leftover wood knobs to create this planter.
How to Turn a Coffee Can Into a Planter
Don't just recycle that metal coffee can, reuse it and turn it into something pretty for your home.
Learn how to upcycle a basic coffee can into a lovely and functional planter.
I punched a few holes in the bottom of the can for proper drainage.
To dress up the wood knobs, which were leftover from an Ikea dresser that got an upgrade, I spray painted them bronze. Then I hot glued them to the base of the can. You can use a stronger glue but I found that this works just fine and holds up well for a medium sized house plant. Be sure to space them evenly so your planter is sturdy.
Finally, I cut some adhesive shelf liner and wrapped it around the can. The black and white paper looks so good with bright pink flowers.
Tip: Save the lid! When I water this plant I stick the lid underneath the planter to catch any water that drains out. You can leave the lid there or stash it away until you water again.
