Happy Saturday! Today I want to share my up-cycle idea.

It takes less than 30minutes to make this whimsical can flower vase and you will love it forever! 🙂

How to make:

1.Clean and dry an empty can. (I recommend fruit cans)

2.Save the paper menu from your local restaurant and tear them a part. Roll it around the can and glue the edge.

3.Brush the surface roughly with white gesso or white acrylic paint. Let dry.

4.Roll any decorative strings around the can several time and tie the knot.

5.Enjoy yourself or surprise your friend!

When this “can vase” gets old and rotten, you can still use for dry flowers.

I just washed another can and put under my kitchen window.  You never have enough vase if you have good friends around. 🙂

Thank you for visiting me again.

Love always,

Minki
