It is so easy to recycle cans into lovely natural flower pots for the holidays.
For this craft you will need:
- large can like a 800 ml or 16 ounce can - black paint and a paint brush - sawed wood pieces that are the height of the can and cut in half in the length
- hot glue gun - natural raffia - small pine cones
1. First paint the can black to prevent the can from shining through the crevaces between the sticks. Let the can dry before you continue.
2. Hot glue the sticks then onto the can. They should be as close to each other as possible. 3. Tie a few pieces of raffia around the can and finish it off with a bow. 4. Glue on a couple of small pine cones for an extra natural touch.
