How to Turn Food Containers Into Planters
These are the materials I used.
Prior to spray painting make sure you are working with a clean surface by wiping off your container. I used a plain wet rag.
If you plan to use this as a real planter poke holes in the bottom with a nail and hammer. I put three holes in mine.
After propping your container up on a box, you are ready for your first layer of spray paint. You should spray from approximately 12 inches away and you will want to apply a thin coat in order to prevent dripping.
After waiting approximately 30 minutes you can apply a second coat. Again you will want to spray from 12 inches away and apply a thin coat.
After waiting about an hour your container is now ready to add some greenery. Either add dirt and a real plant or do what I prefer and add a faux plant of your choice. Start saving those containers!
