Start by taking your tin cans, and applying white paint onto them. I am using a white acrylic paint on my cans. I used only one coat of paint on each can. Allow your can to fully dry.

After, take your decorative tissue paper, and begin to cut two sections. These two sections will go around your cans. Once you have cut your sections, set your paper aside.

Next, take your mod podge, and apply them onto your cans. Apply a thin layer to each can. Add your tissue paper to your cans. Be sure to smooth your paper out as you add it over your mod podge. I used my blow dryer to help when smoothing any wrinkles out.Take another thin layer of mod podge and add it onto your cans.

Next, begin to wrap your twine around the top section of your can. As you wrap your twine around, apply a thin amount of hot glue. Apply your twine on top of your hot glue. Repeat this step on your second can. I wrapped my twine around twice on both of my jars.

Take a section of twine, and cut a medium strand. Once you have done so, use your hot glue on the inside of your two cans, and add your twine. This will be used for when you hang your decoration.

Take your floral, and begin to cut them to size. You will add your floral on the inside of your two cans. I decided to add two small craft foam blocks on the inside of my cans. You don't need to add foam blocks, but I thought it would help hold my floral in a little better.

Your floral hanging decoration is complete! I love how this upcycled craft turned out. Thank you so much for stopping by, and creating with me. I'll see you soon!
