Recycled Tomato Cans Turned Cottage Planters

I love taking recycled items and turning them into functional pieces.My project starts with tomato cans. These will become planters for my planter ledge.
I first pre drilled a hole on the bottom of my cans.(If not a drill, a nail and a hammer will do the trick).
For a cottage/shabby chic feel,I choose moss to cover my cans.This came by the roll, you can also purchase in pieces at your Dollar store or craft store.Cut to size or piece on using hot glue.This will hold up better.
I filled my new planters with ornamental cabbages that will go through the fall/winter season.
This only cost pennies on the dollar, with plenty left over for other projects.Check my blog here on hometalk for other ideas!
