DIY: Soup Can to Flower Vase

A simple soup can could be reused in so many ways.... this week, I transformed my soup can into a flower vase.


The process was quick and easy.  I removed the label from the soup can (if the label leaves behind stickiness, a little Goo Gone always helps).  I opened the soup can with a can opener that doesn't produce sharp edges (the Kuhn Rikon is my favorite), then saved the soup in a separate bowl and washed the inside of the can, let it dry and painted it.

I spray painted the soup cans with Krylon's Brushed Metallic in champagne.... a few light coats covered the cans.

Once the paint was dry, I clipped a variety of blooming pinkish colored flowers from my yard, filled the can with water and added the flowers to my new metallic vase.

A few vases are now spread out around my house in preparation for this weekend.  Some friends and I are getting ready to host an exciting celebration on Saturday!  Here's a glimpse....
