Oatmeal Tin & Burlap Vase

A whimsical way to display a bouquet. Use an empty McCann's Oatmeal or other vintage-y can, with a square of burlap. Fill small jar or glass vase with water, wrap loosely with burlap, slip inside the can. Add flowers - charming!

    Thank you for sharing this. I love the idea. If you happen to have another John McCann container lying around, I'd love to purchase one!

    I have found vintage tins at estate and garage sales, even at very good prices.
