DIY Paint Can Planter/Vase // 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 believe you are partly responsible for the growth of people wanting to grow succulents (one being me!) HSN has hooked up with Altman and selling them now, I think this is the first time, don’t remember seeing them offer these before. They were talking about how the demand for these little plants ha increased. Amazing how many varieties there are. Really enjoy your videos, thanks for taking the time to do them.

Wouldn’t they rust? If so, would it harm the plant?

Travis Bergmann says:

Please Help- what kind of house plants do you think work best with cats- my cats love to eat plants and of course throw up after. Ive tried terrariums but they destroyed them as well- I haven’t found any containers with lids I like get- any suggestions?
