green idea: repurposed tin can DIY planters

Isn't it wonderful how plants can lift your spirits on a dark day or after a long winter? Even better is when they're displayed in pretty pots and vessels! No need to spend money on expensive ceramic or glass pots though - tin cans pulled from your recycling bin, or purchased at IKEA or the dollar store will do the trick. Get creative and wrap them in whatever material suits you.

I recently wrapped some IKEA metal planters with repurposed natural materials -  jute rope, birch bark and burlap. Don't they look cute?

Pull out the empty tin cans from your recycling bin, get out your hot glue gun and go crazy.
