DIY Floral Soup Can Planters

I recently shared some really simple DIY Soup Can Planters that are just a perfect home decor project for any space. Today, I am taking that a step further with this even prettier Floral version.

With only a few supplies and 30 minutes, you can make these cute soup can planters. Fill with flowers for a side table, plants for a centerpiece, or herbs for a kitchen windowsill.

Instructions:

Lay the can on the edge of the fabric and wrap the can. You will cut the fabric so that you have enough to wrap around the outside of the can and have it barely overlap in the back. As well. The fabric will start at the bottom edge of the can and extend about two inches over the top of the can.

Repeat the measurements on a second piece of cloth.

Use the glue gun to secure the edges of the fabric to the can and to connect the fabric in a straight line in the back.

Fold the excess length into the top of the can. Secure with the glue gun.

Fill the pots 1/3 of the way with potting soil. Slip the plants out of the container and set them into the cans. Add soil around the plant leaving at least an inch of room at the top of the can.

TIP: Be careful to not get soil on the outside of the can or it can stain the ribbon and string. Use a heavy weight paper as a funnel to add dirt to the can to keep it from spilling.
