DIY Recycled Tin Can Flower Pots

Love recycling? Then instead of throwing away your tin cans, why not recycle them into something pretty and useful like some flower pots. Here’s how to make tin can flower pots in just a few easy steps.
This was insanely easy yet I found out I'm definitely not a good designer so I had to go with a minimalist design. So I just painted my tin cans in gold as a base and sprayed some black paint, at the bottom on one of the tin cans and the top on the other (sort of like Yin and Yang)
Materials I used:

- 2 tin cans

- metal sandpaper P 1000


- spray paint (I chose golden and black because I had some left from a project where I recycled some plastic bottles into vases and didn’t want to buy new paint before finishing these).

- paper sheet

- scotch tape

= big piece of carton to work on to avoid spilling paint

- soil

- some gravel

- flower to plant

    Hi Petro, I really like these! The colors of paint you had, and used are classy looking. These are set apart from typical Tin can projects. Thanks!
