DIY Paint Can Planter/Vase (Full Version) // Garden Answer

I love this idea for an inexpensive, but upscale-looking container! You wouldn’t even need to buy a paint can, you could use a coffee can, or soup can, or anything that has straight-sides, and go nuts with contact paper! there are so many neat designs out there, although I think marble is my favorite (at the moment). If you try this project out at home, please post a picture on FB or Instagram and tag me so I can see it! 🙂 Thanks for watching! ~Laura

I see a lot of crafter’s using spray paint…do you know for under $5.00 you can get a handle that pops on the top NO MORE TIRED MULTI COLORED FINGERS worth the money if you paint a lot.

Amazing!!! Love your ideas! I’ve copied a few actually and they all turn out great! Love your channel!

ThePassionateGardener says:

Great idea!!;-)

Jackie Binkley says:

This is a great project for upscaling used containers.

Peggy Ekena says:

A really creative and inexpensive idea! Might even be something a bride could use for centerpieces on the tables at her reception. Do you know the item number of the fairy garden house that you planted succulents on the roof. I’ve tried to find it on their website to no avail.

Green Kitty says:

Wouldn’t the tin cans rust?

Roshani Barapatre says:

lovely ideas
love you mam

Brimwood Farm says:

Great video and PERFECT timing as I was just looking at all my pet food cans and wondering what to do with them. They have ridges, but will experiment and see what happens!

Karina Rivera says:

February tour please. I look forward to see your videos. I’m not really good at gardening but it reminds me of my mother and that’s why I try.

Mimi Zabela says:

What a great idea, and what perfect timing. I am moving to an apartment with tons of light so I can finely have house plants again. I’ve been looking at planters and of course all the ones I like are crazy expensive. Now I can create my own. Love it. Thanks Laura. Mimi

Pam Jones says:

Tim says:

Could you please do a video on repotting an aloe? I have one that has lots of babies, but I’m afraid to ‘tear’ them apart, how should I split them? 🙂

End User says:

What a great and inexpensive idea for a large event! You could probably use them several events and in between, take them home for decoration. I liked the tip on packing the soil to the sides while planting.

Anabia1608 says:

I did samething like this and The result was nice also… I recicle The cans that i have at hoje with food (tomato Sauce, corn..) and painted then with a spray. I love your idea with the contact Paper, I will try!! I love your channel! Congratulations!

landipan says:

Have you ever successfully grown a hydrangea from cuttings? Any advice?

Karen Kneebone says:

You can also cut the channel out with a can opener and spray your empty food cans for the same purpose. Love this idea! Great video.
