I love finding cheap and affordable ways to decorate my home and also my outdoor living space! Bringing fresh flowers into your home or onto an outdoor patio is a great way to add life and color to your space. But when I want to put flowers on my table outside, I always worry about the vases getting knocked over and broken. So the other day I decided to put a few beautiful blooms into some washi tape covered tin can craft vases and it became the perfect way to add flowers to my outdoor living space without being worried about anything breaking! Plus, these are so fun to create, so creative, quick and inexpensive too! Keep reading to learn more.
If you are anything like me, you have a few cans of food in your home. I try to use fresh whenever possible, but I regularly use canned chicken broth and canned beans. So as I used cans for cooking, I set aside a few for this tin can craft project. Be careful when using tin cans though because the top edge can be sharp. We have a can opener that leaves the top edge not sharp so I recommend using one of those for this project especially if you have little ones in the house, you don’t want any cut fingers.
After I removed the contents of the tin can, I washed it out thoroughly and removed the label.
Then I took a variety of washi tape and covered the cans with it!
You can space the washi tape out, or put it close together. You can alternate designs or use all the same pattern. There are so many options and you can get as creative as you want with these tin can craft vases!
Another fun way to re-use tin cans is to create these tin can planter recycled crafts that are perfect for kids!
