DIY: Mineral Water Can Planter

Posted on

How was your weekend friends? Mine was a very busy and creative one. Here I am with this month’s DIY project. I had this mineral water can lying unused for ages and if you know me well then you must be aware that I love hoarding junk.

This water can had grown algae inside it and was in very bad shape. I would have thrown it in the trash but then an idea sparked and I turned it into a pretty planter. Wanna see how…. let’s check out…
Here is an ugly, almost gone water can.

Then I cut open its upper part. At first, I thought I should have thrown it but then I washed it thoroughly and felt like I can do something to it.

I drew some patterns on it with marker and then traced the pattern with hot glue.

The pattern on the water can looks like it is embossed.

Here is a different view of the can. Then I painted it in green and Voila!!!!

Here it is………….. sitting  beautifully in my garden.

Then bringing it inside the home was even better. So here is its new place. Next to my dresser.

Giving it company is my Madhubani pot.  Pretty isn’t it. I like it. I am glad how it turned out.

Closer look at pattern. I could have hot glued more patterns but then I became desperate to finish the project.

  1. another clever idea Disha! I LOVE the bright Spring green you chose !! We'll soon be able to buy flowers for outdoors-I'm going to take a look in our shed and see if there's anything I can pretty up 🙂

  2. Thanks a lot Linda!! Even I also liked the color. Initially I had no clue which color I'll going to paint. I picked two colors mixed them and just applied and it turned out so beautifully.

  3. Hi DIsha,
    Very nice. I guess the challenge here is to cut the CAN symmetrically,How did you do that? Also, what kind of color did you use? I liked the concept of hot glue embossing.
