Upcycled Tin Can: Striped Flower Pot

I found some great black and white striped wrapping paper recently, and have been trying to find the perfect way to use it. I think the whole roll of circus stripes will find a happy life in projects around the house, and here’s the first!

My new plant from a weekly outdoor market needed a worthy home.

And a ravioli can won the competition.

If you ever want to wrap a tin can with fun paper, I can offer you two tips:

  1. Carefully remove the label so you can use it as a pattern.
  2. Glue the paper to some cardstock, so it doesn’t get all wrinkly when you glue it to the can.

And voila! A happy can-pot.

Now if you’ll excuse me, dinner’s on.

    Between cans and jars, I think most of life’s storage and decor problems can be solved. For free. 🙂
