Recycled Can Planters

At Nod, we believe your home should be a celebration of family. We'll be featuring our Managing Director, Michelle, at home celebrating her own family with recipes, crafts and décor created by our friend Sweet Paul

This is one of those projects that’s just so simple and has adorable results.  I found a box of vintage tin cans at a flea market for $5.  In a few easy steps I was able to transform them into the most charming little planters!  You don’t have to use vintage cans either–you can use any colorful can with a fun photo or illustration.  The best part is, after the season has ended you can recycle the cans!

Just remember to make a few holes in the bottom of the cans so that the water can drain.
(Use a large nail and hammer for this)

1. Fill the bottom with some pebbles and fill in dirt and your plant. 
2. Super cute with herbs outside your garden window as well.
