FUN SUMMER PROJECT
MAKE SUMMER THIN CAN PLANTERS
Children will love this vertical planting project using recycled tin cans – especially painting them in bright colors. The planting is easy to do and the results will transform a dull fence. The flowers are also great for encouraging bees and butterflies.
- 10 clean 400g ring-pull tin cans
- 10 masonry nails
- Tester pots of ‘toysafe’ metal paint, such as Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch
- Watering can
How to do it:
Punch holes in the base of a ring-pull can with a hammer and nail, then one near the top for hanging. Paint each can a different color and leave to dry. Let the children decide where to place the pots on the fence. Hammer in nails ready to hang your cans. Let your kids hang the cans on the nails. Water the pots daily and encourage your children to help remove dead flowers to keep the plants blooming. Fill the can halfway with compost. Place one plant in each can and fill around it with compost. Firm down well and water all the cans well.
We have a large selection of cactus and succulents coming in next month. Be sure to drop by and enjoy 10% off your purchase!
