Hi, Erin here! I love to take things that are around my house and re-purpose them into something new. Why not turn an aluminum can into something cute, a plant holder or vase?!?
Here is a how to video showing how to make these fun little planters.
I used the amazing Tattered Angels Decor and DIY Paint to cover the cans. The paint gave such great coverage and easy of application, and just check out those colors....AMAZING!!!
I paired the TA paints with the Canvas Home Brands "The Watering Can: Printed Tags - Herbs", kraft paper, and Grey Hemp Rope . I could not resist in using Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme; for those that are in the know!
To help bring a little fun flair to the cans I used the beautiful "Heart Doily" from Die~Namites Dies. It caputred the feel of the September inspiration just perfectly!!
During this month, we have a photo inspiration. Please make anything using die cuts from Die~Namites and let it be the STAR of your design. You can use these combined with colors, shapes, patrons, pattern papers, stamps, paints, stencils, etc. The sky is the limit!
This monthly challenge will run until September 29, 2015 (8:55pm Eastern Time) and there will be a SPOTLIGHT feature of our Top 3 Favorites on October 15. Any style and all levels are welcome! Among the Top 3 favorites, there will be a random draw for a lucky and talented winner who will then receive the top prize. In order to qualify for the top prize, your project has to be NEW, that means not linked back to a previously made project. You are welcome to combine other challenges, but please limit your total number of challenges to no more than 5.
Our Top Winner (randomly selected from the Top 3 Favorites) will receive a $25 voucher!
