DIY Fall (or Any Season) Can Décor

7 Materials

The perfect way to add a pop of color to the outside of your home!
This beautiful DIY Fall Can Décor is the perfect way to add a pop of Fall colors to the outside of your home! Or, let the colors of fall transform your dining room table. Either way, you can whip this statement piece out in less than 30 mins and costs right around $10 to make.
Wash & dry your can. Make sure to remove any of the glue from the can label.
Cut your Styrofoam in half and stuff it inside the can so that it fits nice & tight.
If you’d like to hang your can, you can use ribbon or twine rope like I did and glue it on the sides of the can forming a loop.
Then you may add ribbon around the can to add texture and color.
Cut & separate the silk flowers, and stick them into the styrofoam. Don’t worry about making it look neat and organized. The intended look for this arrangement is to make it look like you picked fresh flowers from a field or bought some at the market.

Suggested materials:

  • Metal can
  • Ribbon & twine rope
  • Silk Flowers

    What size can did you use? I know you can use any size, I was wondering about yours. I love it.

    Very pretty. I'm wondering if that Styrofoam holds up in water? Wondering if I could use real flowers when available.

    Doesn't that rust?
